of detailed, behind-closed- 
doors planning, the BV80 
is already at an advanced 
stage of development.

expertise and our German 
team’s unwavering obsession

People say that owning or chartering a 
superyacht is so much more than a mode of 
transport - it is a way of life. I would go even 
further and argue that owning a yacht is the 
realisation of a dream and, for many, the ultimate 
creative outlet. We aim to reflect this at Bl by 
matching what I call our "strictly boaty" content 
(the Holy Grail of the magazine) with the most 
inspiring and often otherworldly stories and 
images we can find. We hope that our Hollywood 
Issue, timed to coincide with awards season, 
does exactly that. For who can fail to be moved 
by the immortal glamour of Bogart, Burton, 
Sinatra and Flynn as they took to the waves? 

And I challenge any true yacht enthusiast to read 
our guide to boats on film and not go out and buy 
10 box-sets on the spot. As for me - I'll be 
feasting on the true story behind Daniel Craig and 
that shower scene for months. 



■ I'm thinking about buying the rights to the story 
of Graceful and pitching it to a few studios. Take a 
look at this video - bit.ly/graceful-rocks - and tell 
me it wouldn't make a good movie. That brief clip 
was taken after the hull of the 82 metre broke free 
of her tow and pitched up on the rocky coast of 
Norway. From that, to starring in this issue on page 
102. For all our talk of Hollywood, I reckon the 
Oscar for best production goes to Blohm+Voss. 

And if there was an Academy Award for beyond- 
the-call bravery, it'd go to the yacht's skipper, who 
was so protective of the project he took a swim in 
the frigid North Sea to help reattach the tow lines. 
Best location is awarded to Galatea , which I visited 
in a balmy Beaulieu-sur-Mer in January, giving me a 
very welcome break from London's relentless grey. 
As for best dramatic performance? Easy - Jim 
Clark's wunderboat Comanche.

New yacht features eye-popping 
interiors by a Dutch designer 


Superyacht or swanky nightclub bar? The 
interior of Heesen's latest launch, the 
51 metre MySky, could really be both. 
The yacht's exterior was designed by 
long-time Heesen collaborator Frank 
Laupman of Omega Architects, but it's 
who put together the interior that might 
raise a few eyebrows: Erick van Egeraat. 
This is van Egeraat's first boat project; the 
Dutch designer is much better known for 
his commercial and residential projects 
on land, including many of the spaces in 
Moscow's Mercury City Tower, currently 
Europe's tallest building. He was brought 
on by the owners of MySky, and what he's 
created is pretty sensational and quite 
unlike anything else on the water. To see

interior, visit bit.ly/heesen-mysky.

ON BOARD 


Lippy from the LifFey 

One day he’s talking superyachts with Lewis Hamilton - the next he’s combining cycling 
with Champagne and oysters. Welcome to the heady world of Eddie Jordan 



to see it announced that he had teamed up 
with Red Bull - including the genius Formula 
One engineer Adrian Newey. I’m eager to see 
Britain take on the Americans. And the choice 
of Bermuda to host the Cup in 2017 is great 
news. It’s closer, there are strong ties with 
the UK, and Ben knows its 
waters really well. 


I’m really looking forward 
to taking part once again in 
the Champagne & Oyster 
Cycling Club of Monaco race 
from Saint-Tropez to Monaco in April. It raises 
money for the Princess Charlene of Monaco 
Foundation, which 
promotes water safety 
and helps children 
learn to swim. 

Everyone 
brings 


“Prince Albert’s 
birthday is a full-on 
party in the palace. 
He has an Irish bar 
in there” 


their boats to Saint-Tropez for the start, then 150 
riders take off for the 100-mile ride to Monaco. 
Before any of that, though, there’s Prince 
Albert’s birthday in March, which always has 
a St Patrick’s Day theme because the ancestors 
of his mother, Grace Kelly, came from Ireland. 

It’s probably the biggest 
celebration he has all year. It’s a 
full-on party in the palace, but 
also incredibly laid-back. He 
has an authentic Irish bar in 
there, and it’s just so cool. 


My Oyster Lush is out on charter in the 
Caribbean at the moment. She was at the 
* Antigua Charter Yacht Show before 

Christmas and my chef Sibylla Beebe 
won the Chef Competition! She was 
competing in the category for chefs on yachts 
up to 100 feet (30.5 metres) and had to prepare 
an entire meal for the judges. My team also won 
the award for best table setting. Almost 100 
boats at the show and the crew of Lush cleaned 
up! I can’t wait to get out there and see them. I’ve 
sailed with them and think they’re great, 
but I had no idea they were at the 
standard they are. □ 

Eddie Jordan’s fee 
for this column 
has been 
donated to 
charity. 


I predicted a couple of years ago that newly 
crowned Formula One World Drivers’ 
Champion Lewis Hamilton would leave 
McLaren and go to the Mercedes team, but 
little did anyone expect Mercedes to make the 
huge strides forward it has done. It was such 
a thrilling championship all the way down to 
the last race in Abu Dhabi in December, where 
Lewis was crowned. 

It’s remarkable too that he wound up 
fighting for the title with his great friend Nico 
Rosberg; the pair have been racing each other 
since they were seven or eight. Bizarrely, all 
three of us live in the same apartment block in 
Monaco. Now he’s the champion again, Lewis 
should forget about the private jets and get a 
boat - it’s the ultimate getaway. He can join 
Nico, who owns a fabulous new yacht with his 
dad Keke, an old friend from my racing days 
and former Formula One World Champion. 


This time last year I was in the middle of 
preparations for the Cape to Rio race; at 3,300 
nautical miles it’s a true test of boat and crew 
across some of the meanest water on the 
planet. I also fell in love with Cape Town, 
so came back with all the family this year. 
Apart from one day out on the water, 
we’ve done very little sailing, but I’m 
negotiating my team for the St Barths 
Bucket, which is my next really big trip 
and I can’t wait for it to happen. 


I’m a huge fan of the America’s Cup 
and know my fellow columnist Sir 
Ben Ainslie very well. I also know 
his new wife, Georgie, who presented 
Formula One for Sky while I was with 
the BBC. I’ve raced with Ben in the Louis 


Vuitton Cup and he’s a motor racing 
fanatic. What he did in the last America’s 


Cup, plus all his Olympic golds, make him 
nothing short of remarkable. I was thrilled

ON BOARD 


Better by design 

Britain’s new America’s Cup bid seems the best yet, 
and as SirBenAinslie exclusively writes, his latest 
exciting partnership underlines that promise 


W e had a big announcement at 

the end of 2014 that wasn’t quite 
released in time to make it into 
February’s column: our partnership with 
Red Bull Advanced Technologies (RBAT). 

This was something that we had been 
working on for a long time, as you might have 
guessed, if you had read any of the extensive 
speculation in the press! 

It all started when I met Adrian Newey at 
the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix in 2013. 
He told me about his interest in the America’s 
Cup and the new foiling multihulls, and that 
he had a desire to help Britain win it. When the 
top FI designer tells you that he’s interested in 
applying his expertise to your problem, you don’t 
just drop his card in a drawer. 

We followed up that opening chat 
with several conversations about 
a partnership with Red Bull’s 
team principal, Christian Horner. 

There are plenty of strong 
similarities between 
the design challenges of FI and 
the 35th America’s Cup and it 
was clear that they could help us. 

The new America’s Cup boats 
require much more expertise 
in aerodynamics and control 
systems than the old monohulls. 

In the UK we’re lucky to have a 
very high level of knowledge and experience 
in these areas within the motor sport industry, 
and it made a lot of sense for us to partner with 
the leading practitioners. 

RBAT is absolutely right at the top of this 
game and there are many very talented people 
there. The press has tended to focus on our 
involvement with Newey - he is the chief 
technical officer at RBAT, but we’re going to be 
working with the whole team. There are some 
very sought-after engineers at Red Bull and it’s 
fantastic to get access to them. 

RBAT’s technical director, Giles Wood, 
and Andy Damerum (driver development 
manager at the FI team), will be our main 
contacts on the project. We will present them 
with a tranche of work, a particular problem 


or problems, and they will take that in-house 
to their people in Milton Keynes and give us 
some answers. All I can tell you about the work 
is that Giles and Andy specialise in simulation 
and analysis... I’m not giving away anything 
more than that! We can learn a huge amount 
from them and I’m sure it will be a very strong 
partnership for us. 

We’ve already started working on the other 
news that did make it into February’s column: 
the venue announcement for Bermuda. A 
research team went out to the island as soon as 
it was confirmed and had a really positive trip, 
making lots of contacts - the Bermudans were 
really supportive and helpful. I said last time 
that we’re excited about the choice of venue; 
this really is going to be a great America’s Cup. 


One of the questions our guys 
got asked a lot on the research 
trip was, “When are you moving 
out here?” Oracle Team USA have 
already announced that they will 
move to Bermuda in the spring, 
and the America’s Cup Event 
Authority will do the same. We 
have already had our first training 
camp on the island and went at 
the end of January to sail in our two-man 
foiling cats. 

But we won’t be moving the team lock, 
stock and barrel to Bermuda. We’re a British- 
based team, with a permanent headquarters 
in Portsmouth and it’s very important to us to 
be able to utilise the best of British in terms of 
engineering, manufacturing and sailing. 

We will do most of our training in the 
Solent, and by the time you read this we will 
be back sailing at home. So we won’t ever 
be based full-time in Bermuda, but go there 
for specific training periods, when we have 
something to achieve with respect to either 
our sailing or design goals. It’s just another of 
many differences between this and previous 
America’s Cups, a

The reluctant sailor 

► The beautiful star of such iconic films as 
West Side Story and Splendor in the Grass, 
25-year-old Natalie Wood, appears perfectly 
at home as she lounges aboard a sailboat in 
1963. But in truth Wood had mixed feelings 
about the sea, once admitting to being “afraid 
of water that is dark”. Those fears later 
became tragically real. In 1981, the 18 metre 
motor yacht Splendour, which she shared with 
husband Robert Wagner, was the scene of 
Woods mysterious death by drowning one 
drunken night off Catalina Island. 

Her body, bearing bruises, was found floating 
a mile from the boat and witnesses on a 
nearby yacht reported hearing cries for help. 
More than 30 years on, the exact events of 
that night remain opaque and the scandal 
continues to rumble on.

Including two new orders for 
Proteksan Turquoise, a 
revolutionary water bike, 
space-age radar tech - and 
what’s hot (or knot) 

FISHING FOR COMPLIMENTS 




Theo Fennell thinks jewellery should be talismanic and 
enduring, eminently wearable and above all, individual 
and fun. "I truly believe that jewellery should be 
life-enhancing and celebratory, and part of that joy is 
wearing the piece and the pleasure it gives," he says. 

He has certainly fulfilled his own brief with his new 
Under The Sea collection, which brings to life a magical 
aquatic world. The white-gold chandelier earrings and 
necklace, featuring underwater creatures with blue topaz briolette 
drops and diamonds, shimmy languorously as if caught by a swell. 

Also inspired by the ocean is the Sub-Aqua ring. Handcrafted 
from 18ct white gold and set with pave diamonds, it boasts beautiful 
enamelling depicting tropical sea life. The ring showcases a magnificent 
55.46ct rectangular cut aquamarine, framed by tiny gold carved fish. 

Even the box house of the ring tells a tale: modelled on a 17th 
century treasure chest and handcrafted from oak, it conceals a secret 
drawer holding the signed, original drawings for the piece. "I love 
jewellery that bears close scrutiny and that delights, that has a story 
and is personal to its owner," Fennell explains. This is a designer f . 
who is true to his word. Joanne Glasbey theofennell.com 




The groundbreaking superyacht Adas tra 
certainly shook things up when she was 
launched in 2012, and now her designers 
are backing up the concept with a range 
of new trimaran designs. 

The yachts - 80m, 70m and 32m - were 
designed “in response to increased interest 
in both larger and smaller trimarans”, 
according to Orion Shuttleworth from 
Shuttleworth Design. 

The most advanced concepts are the 
70m and 32m. Both yachts are designed 
to slice through the waves with minimal 
resistance, reducing fuel consumption, 
improving comfort and enabling faster 
running in rough conditions. 

They’re attributes the 42.5mAdastra 
has spent the last three years proving, 
after putting 14,000 miles under its keel 
in sometimes tricky seas. 


Like the smaller boat, Shuttleworth’s 
70m will have serious passage-making 
potential, with a range of 7,000 miles at 
14 knots and a top speed of 25-30 knots 
depending on engine set-up. 

“We used all of what we learnt from the 
design of Adastra and carried this forward 
into the new design,” Shuttleworth says. 
“The challenge was to find ways to increase 
interior volume while maintaining similar 
overall proportions.” 

The smaller 32m is designed to run 
with a single l,150hp Caterpillar engine, 
giving it a top speed of 23 knots and a 
range of 6,000nm at 12 knots.

TWICE AS NICE 

Welcome news from Turkey as Proteksan Turquoise 
reports a new owner and two new orders. 

The two yachts - an 81m by Andrew Winch and 
a 47m by H2 Yacht Design - have been signed and 
will be delivered in 32 and 18 months respectively. 

The new investor in the Turkish yard, with a 
controlling stake, is Mohammed Al Barwani, who 
also owns Dutch yacht builder Oceanco. 

"This is excellent news," Proteksan CEO 
Mehmet Karabeyoglu says. "I have known 
Mohammed for four years and he has always 
had an interest in the yard; he came forward 
after the passing of my late partner." 

By adding Proteksan to his portfolio, Barwani 
can now offer a fuller range - with yachts bigger 

than 80m built at Oceanco and yachts from 40-80m built at Proteksan. The two orders come off the back 
of Barwani's investment and more than a year after the launch of lleria (pictured). Karabeyoglu also said 
there were further orders in the pipeline that he was hoping to announce soon, with the yard able to work on 
seven or eight projects simultaneously. 

The 81m is new, but the 47m hull was in stock, hence the 18-month delivery plan, proteksan-turquoise.com

What better form of raerrisc than one combining 
traditional cardio with the pleasure of traversing the 
sea? Californian firm Schiller Bikes s limited-edition 
XI Founder’s Edition water bike neatly blends a 
twin-hull PVC dinghy with cycle components. 

Available in four lightweight steel and 
aluminium frame sizes, it uses a rotary drive-train 


with Gates Carbon Drive beit system and a two- 
stage, 8:1 gear reduction - so you can glide across the 
surface without breaking into too much of a sweat. 

The steering eschews a rudder for twin 
oscillating propellers controlled via the handlebars 
for sharp, safe turns in and out of harbour. It beats 
spinning class. $9,450, schillerbikes.com 



► Anyone who has ever been 
aboard a boat will be familiar 
with the sight of an anemometer 
(or wind-speed meter), original 
versions of which were powered by 
the celebrated "Robinson Cups" 
invented in the 19th century by 
astronomer John Robinson. 

His wheeze is reduced to tiny size by 
Swiss watchmaker Breva, in its new 
model, the Speedmeter. 

Breva is a young, niche brand 
founded by French fashion 
entrepreneur Vincent Dupontreue, 
and its watches are all designed 
to have a connection to the 
environment - so the Breva Genie 
01 is the first mechanical watch to 
contain an aneroid barometer, and 
the 02 the first to have an altimeter. 
The Genie 03 Speedmeter contains a 
pop-up speedometer, incorporating 
a set of Robinson Cups. 

The mechanism fits flush with the 
dial when not in use, but activating 
the push piece causes it to extend 
6mm above the dial, enabling the 
Robinson Cups to spin and drive 
a needle that indicates speed in 
km or mph up to a maximum of 
200kmh/125mph. 

It's a shame there isn't a version 
calibrated in knots - but for anyone 
willing to part with €50,000, Breva 
will no doubt arrange a conversion.

Gucci's timeless loafer 


wardrobe 

essential 


From royalty to film stars, yachties to yuppies, it's 
the shoe that launched a thousand fans. The Gucci 
loafer has undergone many changes during its 62 
years but its distinctive snaffle-bit detail, butter-soft 
leather and almond-shaped toe remain as elegant as 


the day it was launched by Aldo Gucci, son of 
founder Guccio, in 1953. 

For proof of its status as king of men's footwear, 
visit the Metropolitan Museum of New York, where it 
remains the only shoe in its permanent collection. 


And the same reason that makes this iconic shoe so 
popular with Japanese businessmen makes it ideal 
for life at sea - slipping your shoes on and off many 
times a day is all pleasure, no pain.

Great locations 

As technology gets ever smaller and cleverer, life at sea 
can only benefit, says Tim Thomas, including navigation, 
charting - and getting yourself from A to B in style 



When Steve Jobs delivered his famous keynote 
speech announcing the original iPhone concept 

- a multifunction device that made the humble 
telephone look stone-aged - he unleashed a 

global industry based on doing cool things with 
your handset. Now nearly everything you buy 
comes with an app of some form - so why not 
take the concept a step further? Furuno has done 
just that with the snappily named DRS4W 1st 
Watch wireless radar system, designed 
primarily for your tender. Running off a 12V or 
24V system, the set comprises a scanner, a box of 
electronic tricks and an app - yes, this is the 
world’s first wireless radar, viewed and 
controlled via your iOS device of choice. 

Up to two devices (say, your iPhone and the crew’s 
iPad) can be connected at any one time, and with 
a simple interface the radar is fully featured but 
a breeze to use. It means you can convert any 
small tender into a scout vessel, or entertain 
your guests by predicting what is coming 
over the horizon. WiFi range is officially 10m, 
although Furuno says you will be able to connect 
up to 20m away in most circumstances - perfect 
for a small boat. It’s also a great system if you have 
a daysailer or similar and want to add radar 
functionality without the weight and complexity 
of standard radar. furuno.com 

If the 1st Watch radar adds functionality and fun 
to your tender, the company’s WASSP (wide- 
angle sonar seafloor profiler) system could help 
you really get deep into uncharted waters. 
Developed for the fishing industry - and 
installed on 60 fishing vessels in the UK alone 

- the system scans the seabed using a 112° beam, 
profiling the sea floor and depth at 30cm 
intervals. It can then I integrate this data 

with standard charting software, 




<!■ 



effectively creating your own ultra-detailed 
chart. It’s perfect when chart data is either too 
vague or doesn’t exist at all. Now Furuno has 
developed a superyacht-friendly version. 
The transducer is mounted in the tender, which 
can scout ahead, sending the soundings 
information back to the mothership via a WiFi 
transmitter with a range of up to two miles. The 
bridge watch can then get a highly detailed 
picture of the channel ahead, with the 
information stored for return visits. No more 
scary anchorage approaches, or wondering just 
how much water is on that reef up ahead - and 
you get the added pleasure of watching other 
superyachts gasp as you make a seemingly crazy 
approach to a deserted cove. The system is 
reportedly already being installed on a 156m 
superyacht project currently in build. 

So you’ve avoided the oncoming ships and found 
your way into a deserted anchorage - what next? 
How about makingyour tender a true off-roader? 
New Zealand company Sealegs has become well 
known over the last decade for its amphibious 
tenders. The company has so far built more than 
900 Sealegs craft, including more than 100 for 
superyachts. It has now entered the retrofit 
market and created a “bolt-on” kit that can be 
applied to third-party superyacht tenders, 
currently up to 8m in length or 2.5 tonnes in 
weight and soon up to 10m in length, meaning 
you are no longer confined to one of Sealegs’ 
existing designs. Each wheel in the system has its 
own motor, enabling your tender to climb 
beaches, rocks and steps - and now it’s sold as a 
standard kit to external tender builders or 
custom designers, it means you can hit the 
beach in the style of your 
choosing, sealegs.com

Phuket toasts the Asia 
Superyacht Rendezvous 


► The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous celebrated its 14th 
anniversary with an exciting mix of superyachts off 
Kata Rocks, the luxurious host venue in Phuket. 

“The growth in the number of superyachts 
coming to Asia has been phenomenal, especially 
over the last three years,” says Gordon Fernandes 
of Asia Pacific Superyachts, who co-organises the 
Rendezvous with Captain Charles Dwyer. “Our aim 
is to promote the fun side of yachting, so this event 
offers owners and crew the chance to bond and 
share their love of yachts in a relaxed environment.” 

The fleet for the 2014 Asia Superyacht 
Rendezvous featured some of the most impressive 
motor and sailing yachts cruising the world’s 
oceans. The motor yacht fleet featured principal 
sponsor Feadship’s 55m Samax, 41m Moon Sand, 
73m Titania, and the iconic 50.9m Northern Sun. 
Beautiful sailing yachts also graced Kata Bay, 
including 40.2m Si Datu Bua, 36m Yanneke Too, 38m 
Sunshine and the recently launched 37.5m Escapade. 

The celebratory scene was set on the first evening 
aboard Si Datu Bua. Owner Patti Seery and her 
talented crew hosted Rendezvous guests with 
traditional keroncong music, extravagant cocktails 
and delicious Indonesian culinary delights. 

Race Day One produced some fascinating racing.

through the clear waters of 
the Andaman. Built for 
speed and comfort, it was the 
fast cruising sloop Escapade 
that took line honours, to the 
delight of her crew. 

The second evening’s 
revelry took place around 
Kata Rocks’ elegant poolside 
bar and restaurant, 
culminating with the return 
of the Feadship Challenge 
boatbuilding contest. As 
always, the heat rounds were hotly contested, 
with a range of clever designs made from a kit 
of balsa wood, polystyrene, fabric and string 
on display. The crew from Samax eventually 
won after a rematch following a photo finish in 
the first head-to-head leg. 


Sailing yachts opted for a leisurely cruise on Day Two, 
allowing them to enjoy the picturesque backdrop to the full. 
Motor yacht guests joined in the Rendezvous Booty - a pirate 
treasure hunt that saw teams dress up in costumes and search 
for clues on land and in the sea, using their marine navigation 
skills to discover the hidden treasure of chocolate coins and 


sponsor goodies. 

A gala dinner took place on the evening of the final day, with 
a superb dining experience prepared by chef Steve Baker, 

executive chef at Kata Rocks. The Champagne and wine 
flowed freely as guests were wowed by violin-playing trio 
Vietrio against the spectacular backdrop of superyachts 
in Kata Bay.

NEW CAT SET 
TO ROAR 


JFA Yachts and Peugeot 
Design Lab have teamed 
up to design a 35m 
power catamaran. The 
concept, developed "in 
order to answer new 
trends on the design 
market", sports a 
relentlessly aggressive 
profile and a vast area of 
upper deck glazing that 
JFA calls a "sky dome". 
The recess between hulls 
astern fits a 6.5m tender, 
sheltered for boarding, 
while the catamaran 
platform promises wide 
spaces inside. JFA's 
Gael Douget tells Boat 
International his company 
could deliver the 
catamaran in as little as 
24 months after signing

The Italian city of Trieste has been selected 
as the venue for the judging of the World 
Superyacht Awards. The independent jury 
of superyacht owners will gather at the city’s 
chamber of commerce on 27 March to decide the 
winners of the prestigious Neptune trophies, to be 
awarded in Amsterdam on 9 May. 


► Michael Johnson: Olympian, 
400m world record-holder and 
one of the greatest sprinters in 
history - but accessories 
designer? Absolutely. Johnson 
has teamed up with Dom Reilly 
to create the ultimate sports-chic 
manbag: light, made from finest 
quality full grain leather and, 
crucially for any man stepping 
from boardroom to beach club, 
waterproof on the inside and out.

Inspired by the sporty chic of the Cote 
d’Azur, Ralph Lauren’s Porte de Riviera 
collection, out this spring, mixes nautical 
stripes, silver accents and streamlined 
shapes to perfect effect. From striped navy 
coasters to cobalt beach towels and Club 


chairs, the overall impression is one of the 
casual glamour and barefoot style that the 
Riviera is famous for, evoking a bygone era 
when Monte Carlo ruled the waves. He may 
not have a yacht, but Mr Lauren certainly 
designs like someone who has an intimate 
knowledge of them.

Amels has announced that it will 


start building one-off, fully custom 
yachts from 80m to 110m, to 
complement the yard’s successful 
semi-custom Limited Editions 


range, which runs from 55m to 83m. 

The Dutch yard says it is responding to customer feedback - and a 
' shifting market - with this latest move to large, custom yacht building. 

“What we’ve seen is owners coming back to us and asking for larger yachts 
and, in particular, full custom yachts,” MD Rob Luijendijk (right) says. 

The trend towards larger yachts has caused the Limited Editions range 
to expand, with Amels’largest yacht yet, the 83m Limited Editions 272 
flagship, in build and due for delivery at the end of 2016. Despite having a 
full order book, with nine yachts in build, Amels is confident in its capacity and capability to 
take on new custom projects. “Over the years since introducing the Limited Editions concept, 
our team has perfected our build process to a very high degree,” says Luijendijk. “So while we 
are a full yard, we feel ready to grow with this step into full custom.” amels-holland.com

WILD WATER 


On your mark 

In the first of our new Wild Water 
series, Tim Thomas joins stripped-back 
racer Spectre, the new 18.4 metre PD60, for 
an exhilarating blast through the fleet 
at the Voiles de Saint-Tropez 

Photography - Kos Pictures 


A s I drop my kitbag on the port pipecot of the new 
PD60 Spectre before a day of racing at the 2014 
Voiles de Saint-Tropez, a plaque on the inside of the 
companionway catches my eye. It reads: “A wind-torn rag on a 
rust-eaten pole, it does not look likely to stir a man’s soul. ’Tis 
the deeds that were done ’neath the wind-torn rag, when the 
pole was a mast and the rag was a flag.” 

As we leave our mooring in the Baie des Canebiers and 
motor around the headland, the breeze builds and I wonder 
whether our flag really will end up a rag. But more than this, 

I have already found that Spectre - with her bite-the-back-of- 
your-hand good looks, reverse bow and sleek hull - has begun 
to stir my soul. 

If she looks vaguely familiar, it’s because she is an evolution 
of Jack Setton’s 18 metre daysailer Ciao Gianni. The family 
resemblance is no accident, says Spectres owner, businessman 
and venture capitalist Peter Dubens. “I saw the article about 
Ciao Gianni in the pages of Boat International,'’ he explains, 
“and I thought she was beautiful and simple. I loved the idea 
of cruising single-handed with the family, but also being able 
to race with a crew of eight. So that was the concept, as we sail 
here off Saint-Tropez every summer. I really wanted her to be 
a daysailer, so in the summer we have sunbeds on the back and 
children on board; we kept it simple.” 

As we wind up for the race, square-topped main and racing 
blade perfectly set while a thin veil of spray flares over that 
scything reverse bow, it is hard to picture her in cruising mode. 
And in racing mode, she really flies. Although the team - just 
eight, including Dubens on the wheel - is still learning her 
performance, it is clear she is no slouch. Close-winded, fast 
and agile, Spectre garners jealous stares as she climbs past 
competing yachts, her 18.4 metre length and super-low profile 
wowing all who see her. The log climbs through 10 knots as 
the breeze builds to a Force 5, and she slides through tacks 
with a minimum of fuss. It is downwind, though, that her 
evolutionary step from Ciao Gianni will become clear. 

“After I looked at Ciao Gianni,” Dubens says, “I contacted 
her designer, Mani Frers, to look at redesigning the hull. The 






Above: a bolt-on 
bowsprit turns her from 
a family daysailer to a 
downwind flyer, ready for 
battle, but she can still 
be raced with a crew of 
just eight (left and right). 
With no guardwires or 
toerail (inset) she feels 
like a J or an America's 
Cup yacht on the course

Her towering rig is 
3m higher than that of 
Ciao Gianni, on which 
she is based 


concept was to repower her, as Ciao Gianni’s 
hull was too narrow for downwind sailing. 
Mani loved the idea - he was so excited. So 
in 2012 she was reconfigured. Spectre has one 
metre more beam, half a metre extra on the 
keel fin, and she’s three metres higher, with 
a Future Fibres/North TPT rig.” 

As we crack off, the sleigh ride begins. 

A small concession to potential surfing was 
made, as for a more classic aesthetic Dubens 
opted for a slightly pinched-in stern, but 
her performance is no less superlative. She 
quickly climbs through the mid-teens, and 
with the right surf conditions will be a real 
flyer. Moreover, the sensation of speed as she 
cuts through the water is incredible. She feels 
like a Grand Prix racer, a Mini-Maxi with a 
hint of 1980s-era America’s Cup 12 metre, but 
with more dramatic sensations and only those 
eight crew to put her through her paces. 

That said, the lightweight carbon 
construction - from master carbon-flyer 
builder Persico Marine in Italy - has been 
optimised for light winds and short-handed 
cruising, as that is how she will be used 99 
per cent of the time. Indeed, race warm-up 
has been a little hampered as Dubens has 
been using her every day with his family, 
virtually since taking delivery. It is easy to 
see the attraction. With no backstay - there 
are runners, but they only need to be used 


when the wind kicks above 17 knots - the 
aft deck becomes a vast, uncluttered play- 
space. Twin tables can be dropped in to the 
cockpit, while the three-seater bench seats 
either side provide a rather genteel way to 
enjoy her thrills. The cockpit - designed by 
Sir Ben Ainslie’s shore team manager James 
Stagg - is simplicity itself, with a single-point 
mainsheet controlled by a remote and a couple 
of primaries serving a self-tacker, kite and an 
optional staysail. 

The sensation of speed 
as Spectre cuts through 
the water is incredible. 
She feels like a Grand 
Prix racer, a Mini-Maxi 
with a hint ofl980s-era 
America's Cup 12m 

Below, she is pure daysailer, with little 
concession to comfort or amenity - although 
a head is hidden in the crossbeam, with a 
curtain to provide a modicum of modesty. 

She carries a bank of lithium-ion batteries 
that feed ample power to the Cariboni 
hydraulic packs for racing - after four hours 


charging around the course, we have only 
used 50 per cent of their energy capacity - 
while a small engine allows for motoring on 
and off the mooring. It is hard to think that 
the engine will be used for much more than 
this, except in calms, so thrilling and easy a 
sailer is she. 

Dubens, however, has bigger plans, and 
is seeking others who want a combination of 
family daysailer and regatta racer, but who 
also don’t want the hassle of carrying a large 
crew for either. It is an idea that has already 
caught the imagination of some owners, and 
Dubens reports that there are already “three 
or four more in build”. Running as a One 
Design fleet, the moulds are set but a new 
owner can specify his builder of choice. 

It’s a tempting proposition, and our 
performance on the first day of racing at the 
Voiles proves she is more than just a pretty 
face. Olympic 470 medallist Nick Rogers is 
aboard for the Voiles week, calling the shots 
while Dubens steers. “The performance 
is everything we hoped for in the design,” 
Rogers says. “The original brief was for sailing 
short-handed and in light airs. But today we 
were beating much bigger boats - and none of 
them can be sailed with two people.” Our day 
finishes with broad smiles, and thankfully 
no wind-torn rag for a flag. Spectre has still 
managed to stir my soul, though, a

The story behind the picture 


C ary Grant, seen here dressed 
head to toe in Kilgour and 
probably wishing he was 
wearing a pair of sunglasses, was what 
fellow actor David Niven described as 
a GBS - great big star. The Bristol-born 
actor was a colossus on the Hollywood 
stage, remaining one of Tinseltown’s most 
bankable stars for almost 30 years. 

One of his most memorable roles was 
as Nickie Ferrante in 1957’s An Affair to 
Remember, which makes our selection of 
the biggest boating films of all time (see 
page 24). In it, he meets Terry McKay, 
played by Deborah Kerr, aboard a 
transatlantic ocean liner, and the two fall 
in love, vowing to meet in six months’ time 
atop the Empire State Building. In a case 
of life imitating art, Grant met two of his 
five wives on similar vessels: No.2, heiress 
Barbara Hutton; and No.3, actress Betsy 
Drake - who herself had a few boat stories 
to tell, after surviving the Andrea Doria 
disaster in 1956. The liner struck another 
ship off the coast of Massachusetts, 
resulting in 52 deaths. 

Not long after making An Affair to 
Remember, Grant embarked on his last and 
arguably most famous project with Alfred 
Hitchcock, North by Northwest. Almost as 
impressive as this classic is the suit Grant 
wears throughout, made by the brand 
which features to the right, Kilgour. 

Bond made the Savile Row tailor suave, 
but Grant made it dramatic, even wearing 
the grey two-piece when diving for his 
life during the famous scene where he is 
attacked by a crop-dusting plane. 


Teo van den Broeke meets Carlo Brandelli, creative director 
at Kilgour - worn and loved by the stars 


O ne of the references I had when 
originally designing Kilgour was 
Riva, the Italian boat maker,” says 
Carlo Brandelli, creative director of Kilgour. 
The London-born son of Italian immigrants 
has leant on a famously wide sphere of 
influence since taking over the brand in 2003 
(with a four-year interlude when new owners 
took over), covering film, art and design, but 
the boating reference comes as a surprise. 
“Riva was part of my Italian design reference- 
bank way back,” he explains. “It was the very 
pure minimal lines combined with a very 
luxurious material. That was basically it.” 

Boats, in fact, have long played a role in 
Brandelli’s life, something 
he attributes to his Italian 
roots (which no doubt 
also inform his aesthetic 
sensibility); Brandelli 
spends much of his down 


time off the north western Italian coast. “We 
went to Forte dei Marmi (northern Tuscany) 
when I was a kid, and Portofmo and various 
places along the Italian coast.” 

We meet among the rails of his recently 
redesigned shop at No.8 Savile Row. His 
trademark semi-shaded Ray-Bans partially 
conceal his eyes and his perfectly slicked-back 
hair is as immaculate as his surroundings. 

He is a perfect extension of the brand he has 
created. Though the shop, which features a 
Donald Judd-inspired central console that 
seems to float above the steel and granite floor, 
is an impressive paean to Brandelli’s manifold 
influences, it’s the clothes that do the talking. 

Single-breasted one- 
button suits have narrow 
lapels with shifted 
proportions and shapes; 
blazers are slim cut and 
unstructured, finished with

concealed slash pockets; overcoats in textured 
fabrics fit like crafted cardigans. 

The look is sleek and streamlined, 
accentuated by the V-neck shirts, silk scarves 
and textured T-shirts Brandelli has designed 
to be worn with his suits, which are cut to 
both adapt to and make the best of the bodies 
within them. The palette is limited to navy, 
grey, black and other muted shades Brandelli 
deems “correct” for a man’s wardrobe. Fabrics 
are textured and comfortable: jersey mixes, 
flannels and cashmere dominate. 

To the untrained eye Brandelli’s approach 
to menswear may seem somewhat radical, 
but particularly in its Savile Row context, 
Brandelli maintains that he has simply taken 
the natural next step in tailoring, one that 
many designers on the Row have been too 
afraid to take. “No one had thought about 
these shapes before,” says Brandelli. “Why are 
men happy to wear a peak and a notch [lapel]? 
Why have they been happy to do so for 80 to 
90 years? Even the size of 
the break of the notch 
hadn’t been played 
around with.” 

As well as yachts, 
rather appropriately 
for Boat International's 
Hollywood issue, Kilgour 
has a long history of 
film influences and 
of dressing film stars. 

Established in 1880 as T&F French (the name 
was changed to Kilgour, French and Stanbury 
in 1937 and shortened to Kilgour by Brandelli), 
the Savile Row tailor has long been lauded for 
its exemplary bespoke suits. Cary Grant wore 
a slate-grey two-piece in Hitchcock’s North by 
Northwest ( see column , left) and Fred Astaire 
and Frank Sinatra were fans. But it wasn’t 
until Brandelli took over that the brand was 
transformed into a globally recognisable force 
- partly by relying on stars. Jude Law wore 
little else in the early noughties, for example, 
while Daniel Craig wore a one button Kilgour 
two-piece in Matthew Vaughn’s Layer Cake in 
2004 - Brandelli wanted to make Craig look 
like James Bond; two years later that’s exactly 
who he was. 

These days Brandelli is more interested 
in dressing names from the worlds of art and 
architecture, he says. “We like people who are 


It’s when we discuss 
the ultimate yachting 
wardrobe, however, 
that Brandelli comes 
into his own 


The stars wear Kilgour: 
Fred Astaire, Daniel 
Craig in Layer Cake 
and Cary Grant in 
North by Northwest 


celebrated. So if they’re good 
at what they do, then we will 
have them. The ambassadors 
for the brand now are people 
like Chris Dercon, director 
of the Tate Modern, Okwui 
Enwezor, curator of the Venice 
Art Biennale and David Adjaye, 
the architect.” 

It’s when we discuss the 
ultimate yachting wardrobe, 
however, that Brandelli comes 
into his own - it’s something 
to which he has given some 
thought. “There’s a uniform 
you tend to wear on a boat,” he 
says. “Usually a short-sleeve 
navy polo shirt. The ones that 
we do are made from rizzo stitch. It’s a very 
fine stitch. You know how cotton creases? If 
you use a rizzo stitch it stops it creasing. Not 
completely, but it takes it down. It’s also 100 
per cent breathable. 

“Then you’re going to 
have some kind of navy 
short,” he continues. 
“Instead of having a 
cotton navy short, I like 
the pieces I’ve made out 
of lycra: it’s swimming- 
costume fabric that I’ve 
cut to look like regular 
shorts. You get all the

Our very own SWAG (Superyacht Wife) is here to help you meet the A-list, 
zone in on the right ZIP code and arrive in style at the Academy Awards 

This month: how to crack Hollywood’s scene 




Location, location, location 

You are nobody if you re not living on the right boulevard. 

Top tip: buy or rent a house in Bel Air, Beverly Hills or Holmby Hills for ultimate street cred. 

Network like hell 

In LA, chances are that your neighbours will be bona fide A-listers or at least will know some. 
Make sure you drop in at the earliest possible moment to introduce yourself. 


Buy your way in 

Angelinos worship sports teams with religious zeal, so why muck around? 

Buy one and find yourself with a first-class ticket to social supremacy in Beverly Hills and beyond. 



In the name of charity 

Join a charity committee and pledge your eternal support for the arts: in LA, a commitment to culture is de rigueur. Top tip: buy a table 
at the Womens Cancer Research Funds An Unforgettable Evening and get yourself on the board of LACMA (LA County Museum of Art). 




frt 


Oscar action 

Buy a table for Jeffrey Katzenberg’s The Night Before party at the 
Academy Awards or campaign for an invite to the Vanity Fair party. 


Friends in the right places 



Maitre Ds, hoteliers and restaurateurs are key to cracking the Hollywood code and the right table will get you noticed fast. 
Do some major sucking up to Craig at Craig’s, Pamela at The Grill, and Dimitri at Sunset Tower. 


Weekend in style 

Rent a second house for weekends on Carbon Beach in Malibu. Top tip: get on first-name terms with Meir, owner of 
Nobu, the most popular eatery on the strip. For extra cachet, become a member of the Riviera Country Club 

or the LA Country Club. 


Shop to drop cash 

Ideally at the Claire Vivier store for bags, Curve on Robertson for jeans and Oliver Peoples on Sunset for designer shades. 

Look the part 

It’s no good looking good unless the right people have got you there... Turn up at the 6am Barry’s Bootcamp class 
to sweat with the elite and beg for a slot with Saul Choza at Winsor Pilates. Book your highlights with 
Tracey Cunningham at Meche, where you will spot more celebrities than at the Vanity Fair Oscar party.

A s the Oscar statuettes were being 
lined up at the Dolby Theatre in 
Hollywood in preparation for the 
87th Academy Awards, so the superyachts 
were lining up off Venice Beach ready for the 
film stars, producers, directors, writers, 
agents, publicists, managers, lawyers, 
distributors and others for whom it’s the 
biggest night of the year. They will all be intent 
on schmoozing and being schmoozed - and 
many will be carrying a massive thirst. 

Of course, there will be Champagne: 

Dom Perignon, Roederer Cristal, Armand de 
Brignac’s Ace of Spades (the rappers’ favourite 
fizz, recently bought lock, stock and barrel by 
Jay-Z) and - if James Bond/Daniel Craig has 
anything to do with it - Bollinger RD. 

But, more importantly, there will be 
cocktails. And there can be 
no better way of harking 
back to Hollywood’s golden 
age than by dusting down 
the tux and getting busy m 

with the Boston 
shaker. I can’t see 
Gable, Bacall, 

Cagney and co 
necking Ace 
of Spades. It 
would 
have been 


And then there’s the Gin and It, as mixed 
by Vincent Price in Laura. The “It” refers to 
the Italian sweet red vermouth that is mixed 
half and half with gin and served in a chilled 
Martini glass. It’s powerful stuff. By contrast 
the Americano (featured in The Roman Spring 
of Mrs Stone ) is a refreshing long drink, ideal 
for sipping on deck. It’s 25ml of Campari 
and 25ml of sweet red vermouth, served in a 
highball glass with soda and a slice of orange. 

After Oscars night, you’ll need a pick-me-up 
the next day. Try the Corpse Reviver as drunk 
by Robert Young and Constance Cummings in 
Remember Last Night? It seems way too punchy 
for me, being 30ml Cognac, 20ml sweet 
vermouth and 20ml Calvados, with orange 
zest, served in a frosted Martini glass. I’m not 
sure I wouldn’t rather have the hangover. 

In truth, there’s nothing better than a fine 
Bloody Mary, as served to Jayne Mansfield 
by Tom Ewell in The Girl Cant Help It. My 
BM includes adding a dash of dry sherry and 
some fresh orange juice to the 

vodka, tomato juice, lemon 
juice, Tabasco, Worcester 
sauce and celery salt. 

The sherry adds a 
delightful savoury, nutty 
flavour and 
the orange 
and lemon 


The Dry Martini is, of course, the classic. 
Remember Clark Gable and Constance 
Bennett in the 1935 film After Office Hours ? 

To honour them, rinse a mixing glass with 
some ice and a couple of drops of dry Martini. 
Drain the liquid, add more ice and 50ml of gin. 
Strain into a Martini glass with zest of lemon 
or a green olive. 

Or how about a Gibson? It’s similar to 
the Dry Martini but is served with a pearl 
cocktail onion as opposed to an olive. It was 
popularised in the 1950s in All About Eve 
with Bette Davis. “Fasten your seatbelts,” she 
famously says, “it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

BOAT LIFE 




The fashion world is heading out to sea this spring /summer 
and coming back with aquatic inspiration, as Clare Coulson discovers 


Deep impact 


F rom the seashells and seaweed that snaked up Valentinos 

evening gowns to the jaunty anchors that cropped up as motifs in 
a clutch of collections, fashion embraced marine life this spring. 
Not that nautical style is ever out of vogue. At the beginning of the 
20th century, Coco Chanel found inspiration in the crisp utilitarian 
clothes the fisherman of Deauville wore. Their Breton tops and wide-leg 
trousers were reconfigured for Chanel’s elegant clientele and, a century 
on, the label is still producing super-luxe versions of 
these enduring classics (as in 1988, right). 

But nautical is being interpreted in ever more 
elaborate and sophisticated ways. This season 
designers have gone deep into the ocean, trawling 
for underwater references to create dreamy gowns 
ornate with marine emblems, stunning sea-life 
jewels and shimmering aquatic motifs. From the 
gently surrealist nautical looks at JW Anderson 
(back- to -front sailor trousers anyone?) to the more 


literal sea creatures swimming around Mary Katrantzou’s shimmering 
cocktail dresses, or the wonderfully ravaged “fishing net” dresses that 
appear in Rodarte’s collection, fashion has truly gone into the deep. 

This summer, evening dresses will be adorned with ocean creatures 
too, as fashion goes on an aquatic adventure. At Valentino the theme is 
applied to exquisite gowns: eau de nil chiffon is printed with shells and 
seahorses, fish and sea urchins; sheer floor-length dresses are 

embellished with beaded starfish, shells and coral and 
paired with flat sandals topped with a gold seahorse. The 
Rodarte sisters take inspiration from childhood trips to 
Monterey’s tide pools: dresses and knits are festooned like 
fishnets and sprinkled with sequin barnacles and sea 
anemones. Katrantzou snakes shimmering sequinned fish 
around her neat cocktail dresses and Julien Macdonald’s 
mermaid-inspired gowns are lush with tropical fish 
embroideries. Here, we round up the must-have trends for 
any boating enthusiast with a strong sense of style.

THE REINVENTION 

Buttoned-up sailor trousers - 
updated: at JW Anderson, crisp 
cotton trousers worn back to 
front; at Gucci, sailor trews 
cropped, in myriad versions. 


THE INSPIRATION 

From 22 May to 29 August, 
London's Fashion and Textile 
Museum takes a look at more 
than a century of Riviera 
beachwear trends, from beach 
pyjamas'to the bikini. 


THE BOOK 

Valentino: At The 
Emperor's Table 
is a masterclass in 
entertaining at his 
homes, including his 
yacht, TM Blue One. 


THE EVENING 
BRETON 

La Mariniere gets an 
upscale makeover thanks 
to Oscar de la Renta's 
sumptuous T-shirt in navy 
and white stripes with 
a pelmet of fluttering 
feathers. 


THESEASHELL 

JEWELS 

Aurelie Bidermann's 
Nautilus pendant 
has a paperclip 
gold chain with a 
shell embellished 
by sapphires, 
tsavarites, 
amethysts and 
diamonds. 


THE MOTIF 

Spring's fondness for 
nautical has inspired literal 
interpretations; anchors on silky 
Kelly Green Hermes scarves and 
on JW Anderson's chic men's 
sweaters. The motif pops up on 
chambray jackets at Anthony 
Vaccarello too. 


THE PRINT 

Christopher Kane turns humdrum 
into seductive: nautical knots as 
glossy embroideries on cocktail 
dresses and sheer tulle tops or trims 
on sunray print skirts and dresses. 


THE SHORTS 

Orlebar Brown's sleek 
swimmers and bermudas 
feature coral and feather 
star, shoals of fish in inky 
blue waters or holiday scenes 
from the Hulton Archive. 


THE COLOUR 

Navy blue is as 
versatile as it is 
easy to wear, 
whether it's a 
striped cardigan 
from Chanel, navy 
leather trim on 
Prada's oversized 
shades or the 
quilting on Louis 
Vuitton's chain- 
strapped bag. 


THE BAG 

Charlotte Olympia's 
limited-edition evening 
bags are a cultish red- 
carpet must-have. Her 
sailing themed collection 
includes classic novels 
such as Conrad Aiken's 
Blue Voyage, beautifully 
hand-stitched into book 
clutch-bags.

Doors to adore 




British design duo Yiolanda Knowles and 
Jonathan Christou update historical design 
using innovative techniques. The Lulu Cabinet, 
£4,240, has echoes of the art deco movement 
in its referencing of East Asian design, but it is 
brought into the 21st century with printed glass 
and burnished metal, knowles-christou.co.uk 



It’s a material world 

Referencing exotic birds, geometric patterns and precious

Sensual Italian 


Only recently unveiled 
at London's Chelsea 
Harbour Design Centre, 
the Azucena Collection 
(at GMR Interiors) 
was a hitherto secret 
of the Italian design 
cognoscenti. The entire 
150-piece collection 
is Italian made, down 
to the last bolt and 
references the sleek sensuality of art deco, with a distinctly 
modern twist. This brass Alzabile floor lamp with black 
marble base is £1,291.20.

Lovely to seat you 

This copper-legged, larch wood 
Shelter chair is a new design from 
Christian Liaigre, £5,338, and 
echoes the art deco movement's 
love of symmetrical curves and 
modern glamour. Like all of Liaigre's 
designs, it is an immensely sensual 
piece, inviting the user's hands to 
explore the touch of its smooth 
lines and highly polished wooden 
veneer. Liaigre's new retail space

Beauty 

Queasy 
does it 


Prone to going green on deck? 
Pay a visit to the experts before 
you get on board, advises 

Olivia Falcon 



S easickness can floor the most intrepid 
sailor, so this month’s burning beauty 
question is how to keep yourself from 
looking green around the gills when nausea takes hold? 

I advise making a pre-emptive strike - either by turning to 
ancient methods or by investing in modern science. 

For the alternative approach, head to the Asante 
Academy of Chinese Medicine in Londons Highgate 
(asante- academy. com) and Professor SongXuan Ke (he 
also has a clinic on Harley St, £250 for a consultation). 
“Chinese medicine deals with the body’s constitution,” says 
Ke. “Constant movement causes an inner-ear imbalance, 
which causes sickness The best way to combat this is with 
warm herbs to tonify the spleen: Chinese yam, tree bark 
and ginseng, and teas such as ginger and 
pepper and orange peel.” Ke mixes up 
remedies on site. Pre-travel, he offers 
acupuncture sessions to balance the 
meridians and target energy points in the 


body. He also coaches patients to locate key trigger points 
that work to settle the stomach. 

In Knightsbridge, Dr Richard Sibthorpe (£120 for a 
consultation , thesmartclinics.co.uk ) offers a more Western 
approach. This comes in the form of highly effective 
antihistamine cyclizine injections or tablets, which have the 
bonus of making you feel less drowsy than other remedies. 

For a pampering approach try Michelle Roques-O’Neil 
(roquesoneil.com) at Fortnum and Mason’s Beauty ala 
Carte spa. Her Therapy Chi Body Balance, £140, is the 
antithesis to a zonk-out massage. She uses reviving oils and 
concentrates, and long, strong strokes to 
disperse and move energy through the 
body and stabilise you from the inside out. 
You can head out to sea feeling wonderfully 
calm rather than inwardly wobbly.

In full flow 

Yoga improves posture, lengthens muscles and soothes 
your mind, says the team at London’s exclusive KX Gym 
- and it is just the thing for an early morning on deck 


A n intense, iron-pumping fitness 
regime may not be to everyone’s 
liking. A flowing workout that 
focuses on body, mind and breath together 
can be just as beneficial. Create strength 
and length in your physique by using these 
yoga poses that are combined with core 
and dynamic athletic-flexibility exercises 
for extra effect. All you need is a yoga mat 
and the intention... 

Exercise-set one 

• Start in a standing position, take three deep 
diaphragmatic breaths and, on the last inhale, 
raise your arms over your head. Bring your 
palms together with your chest open. Raise 
your gaze up to your hands. 

• Exhale and bend at the waist, keeping 
your core strong. Inhale and bring your gaze 
up and straighten your back. On the next 
exhale, place your hands on the floor in front 
of you and jump backwards into a press-up, 
plank position. 

* While holding this 
position, walk your hands out 
in front of you to challenge 
your core. Keep your 
breathing normal and brace 
your core muscles. Walk 
the hands out as far as you 
can while maintaining your 
form, then return your hands to the 
press-up, plank position. 

• On your next exhale, lower the press-up, 
then inhale and move into an upward dog 
position (chest up, hips down with legs active 
and strong). 

Exercise-set two (flows from above position) 
• Come back to the plank position, then 
exhale and bring your right leg forward, 
placing it on the outside of your right hand. 


Inhale and rotate your left arm and hand 
straight up to the ceiling. Exhale and return 
to the plank. Repeat on the opposite side. 

* From the final plank position, inhale and 
roll into a side plank on your right hand and 
foot (both feet together, whole body straight 
- imagine being between two sheets of glass). 
Exhale and raise your hips from the glutes 
while reaching your top arm overhead. 

* Inhale and return to the plank position. 
Repeat the side plank flow on the left side. 
Exhale and push backwards into the 
downward dog inverted-V shape and spend a 
few breaths in this position; alternately press 
your heels to the floor to work your calves and 
hamstrings while remembering to breathe 
and keep the core braced. 

Exercise-set three (from above position) 

* Inhale and walk your hands in small steps 
back towards your feet until you are in a 
braced forward-bend position. 

* Place your right hand on 
your left shin or foot, exhale 
and windmill your left arm 
upwards while bending your 
left leg slightly and keeping 
your right leg straight. Inhale 
and lower your left arm. 
Repeat with the right arm. 

* As you inhale back to your 
final forward bend, keep the core braced 
and roll up through your spine, vertebra by 
vertebra until standing. 

* Inhale, raise your arms above your head, 
palms together, chest held high and gaze 
to your hands. Exhale and relax back to 
standing. Finish with three deep breaths. 

You can repeat this flow three to five times.

Chopard 

stoppers 

Over 18 years ago the Swiss 
jewellery house made Cannes 
sparkle. As Avril Groom 
discovers, it didn’t take long for 
Hollywood to catch on 

I ts not just the frocks that create 
acres of coverage at Hollywood 
awards ceremonies like the Oscars 
and the Golden Globes. The 
jewellery that accompanies them 
is equally headline-worthy. 

This is something Caroline Scheufele, 
Chopard’s creative director and co-president, 
realised 18 years ago when she approached the 
Cannes film festival organisers and offered to 
redesign their premier award, the Palme d’Or. 
Chopard was already a successful jewellery 
company but the red carpet industry was in 
its infancy and most of the jewellery worn by 
stars, especially in Hollywood, came from 
American brands such as Harry Winston, 
Tiffany and Fred Leighton. At about the same 
time, designers such as Giorgio Armani and 
accessory brands such as Jimmy Choo started 
to make links with stars and their stylists, 
offering specially tailored pieces to actors 
before big events. 


Scheufele thought that the same could 


In Cannes, however, she finds “people are more adventurous, 


happen in Cannes and sure enough Chopard 


keener to show their personality, and go for long chandelier earrings 


quickly became the top jeweller of the festival, 
in demand by actresses from around the 
world. Word spread fast. Now, as Scheufele 
says, “The big Hollywood names increasingly 
come to Cannes where they discover our 
jewellery and this evolves organically for 
appearances back home so we set up a similar 
operation in Hollywood.” 

These days Chopard has perhaps the 
highest profile of any European jeweller in 
Hollywood. At the recent Golden Globes, 
Julianne Moore, Dame Helen Mirren, Lupita 
Nyong’o and Livia Firth all sparkled in 
striking Chopard jewels. 


and big cuffs, often very colourful. I sometimes think it’s because of 
the relaxed Cote d’Azur ambiance”. As such, she finds herself invited 
to glamorous parties aboard yachts and has a stockpile of suitable 
jewellery. “I love our Happy Sport watch, with free-floating diamonds 
and jewelled fish,” she says. “It has a rubber strap and it’s a diving 
watch so I swim wearing it. I also love pale coloured stones in watery 
shades that we mix - aquamarine with amethyst, for example, as 
earrings - and then, for yacht cocktail parties, there’s nothing better 
than a bold ring with diamonds and a stunning coloured gem.” 

In addition, the ever-expanding Animal World range of one-off 
pieces includes a surprising number of sea creatures. “They are 
unique designs that never get repeated,” she says, “but fish are a 
theme I return to in new ways. They are such positive symbols 
in many cultures and we are launching an important new fish

T t is tempting to see the history of menswear 
over the past 50 years as an uninterrupted 
decline into casual, as the immaculately 
suited idols of the silver screen have been replaced 
by scruffs in jeans and T-shirts. The truth, though, 
is not nearly so clear-cut. While dress codes have 
undoubtedly become more relaxed, it’s still the 
case that when men do have a chance to dress up 
- on the red carpet, for example - they seize the 
opportunity to show how dandy they can be. 

One of the slickest tuxes on offer right 
now - true Hollywood glamour but in a 
contemporary way - is Kris van Assche’s 
pin-sharp creation at Dior Homme. 

Of course, no man has ever looked as good 
in black tie as James Bond. The secret agent’s 
relationship with the venerable British outfitter 
Turnbull & Asser dates back to 1962 and the first 
Bond film, Dr. No. Today, T&A’s take on the 
cocktail cuff designed for Daniel Craig in Casino 
Roy ale is still the smartest shirt to wear with a tux. 

For a more relaxed vibe, tip your stylistic cap at 
the great impresarios of old Hollywood, with the 
obligatory fedora from Bates, like T&A, also of 
London’s Jermyn Street. You can channel the spirit 
of James Dean in the perfect pair of retro Ray- 
Bans to ensure the fans don’t bother you. And to 
express your inner Brat-Pack rebel, try a Saint 
Laurent snakeskin blazer ala a young Nic Cage. 

And for those screenwriters out there, keep 
your treatment, your laptop and this week’s The 
Hollywood Reporter in a Burberry writer bag,

B writer Bruce Chatwin.

Shooting stars 

Hugo Rifkind may want to create a movie masterpiece - but 
today’s hi-tech cameras make it a really tough scene 


► The Panasonic HC-X1000 is the sort of camera you get if you 
could easily afford a film crew - and one perhaps directed by 
James Cameron of Titanic - but fancy doing it yourself. For the 
world of filming stuff has changed, somewhat, over the last 
couple of decades. 

Time was, having a camera was a big deal. Got a shoebox on 
your shoulder, with a black-painted loo-roll coming out the front 
and a VHS tape superglued to the side? Well, hello there, Martin 
Scorsese. These days, though, any old chump with a smartphone 
can make a film. And, indeed, they do. Endlessly. 

Yet, while there's a whiff of "man with an iBook in a coffee 
shop, who thinks he's thereby halfway to writing a screenplay" 
going on here, that only lasts until you use the HC-X1000. To be 
serious, this is serious kit. It's what you might call "prosumer" - for 
the consumer pro; ie, James Cameron won't sniff at it. It has a 4K 
8-MP 1/2.3-inch BSI sensor and offers 60p at UHD. Yes! And, while 
I haven't a clue what that means, those who do will whistle 
approvingly through their teeth. Find a film buff and try them. 


They also tell me, these people, that this is a camera best 
suited for people to shoot something close to the finished 
product, rather than fiddle around in post-production. More 
excitingly, it sits on your shoulder like a bazooka, and weighs just 
1.5kg. There are so many buttons and levers that it took me a whole 
hour of playing to even find the viewing screen, which slides out of 
the top. It takes two SD cards, which work in some magical fashion, 
so you never need miss a moment. The zoom (20x) is astonishing. 

Film something with this and nobody will mistake it for 
something you shot, half-arsed, on your iPhone. Even for a 
novice like me, the end product has a depth and a feeling of 
professionalism. Indeed, my only real complaint is that every time 
you ask it to do almost anything, it lets out a shrill, admonishing 
beep, like R2-D2 might if you trod on his foot. Tote this around, 
all the same, and geeks and civilians alike are pretty impressed. Or, 
at least, they certainly were at my three-year-old's birthday party.

Whatever 

floats your car 

Amphibious vehicles are not 
just the preserve of James Bond, 
reports Simon de Burton 


O ne of James Bond’s stickier 

moments in the 1977 film The Spy 
Who Loved Me occurred when 
Roger Moore’s 007 was forced 
to drive his white Lotus Esprit 
off the end of a Sardinian pier, to 
outrun the nuclear submarine- 
thief Karl Stromberg’s henchmen - among them the 
fearsome, metal- toothed Jaws. 

Bond fans needn’t have worried, of course, because 
Q Branch had thought of just such a problem and fitted 
the Lotus with a streamlined underside, a bank of 
propellers and retractable wheels and fins. 

It all seemed rather implausible but the car really had 
been converted to operate under water, not by Q, but by 
a specialist American firm called Perry Oceanographic, 
which was rumoured to have charged $100,000 for its 
services (and that was in 1977, remember). 

Despite its starring role in the film, the Lotus ended up 
in a New York lock-up for 10 years, before being sold in a 
blind auction when the storage lease ran out. The couple 
who bought it then sent it to a considerably more high- 
profile sale staged by specialist classic-car auctioneer 
RM, which sold it on their behalf for £550,000 in 2013. 

But while submarine cars are largely the stuff 
of fiction, amphibious ones certainly are not. The 
first truly successful example was the German-built 
Schwimmwagen, designed by Porsche in 1942 and based 
on the Kubelwagen. Lord attempted something similar 
with a water-worthy version of the GPA (or Jeep), which 
was rather worry ingly known as the Seep (for Sea Jeep). 

Perhaps the best known of the early amphibious cars 
designed for civilian use was the aesthetically challenged 
Amphicar of the 1960s. It was loosely based on Triumph 




Herald components. More than 3,700 were built but the 
combination of water and mild steel turned most of them 
into rust buckets and relatively few survive. 

More successful was the German-built Amphi-Ranger of 
the 1980s. This looked similar to a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen 
and featured rust-resisting stainless steel and aluminium 
bodywork, with four-wheel drive for those tricky beach 
landings. Although highly competent and surprisingly safe 
on the water, a gold-plated price tag meant sales were slow 
and fewer than 100 were built. 

My experience of driving amphibious cars is limited to 
two vehicles. The first, a Dutton Commander, I sampled 
on the River Thames in 1999. Despite being slightly 
apprehensive when its designer, Tim Dutton, invited me 
to “drop it off the slipway”, I took to the idea like a duck to 
water once we were under way. 

Apart from the fact that the Ford Fiesta-based 
Commander looked fantastically ugly, it was also somewhat 
underwhelming away from terra firma. Despite a claimed 
top speed of six knots, it struggled against the tidal Thames. 

The problem with amphibious cars is that because they 
drag their wheels and other gubbins through the water they 
are incapable of planing. It’s all to do with the displacement 
theory of boatbuilding. This dictates that, regardless of 
engine power, a craft will only ever be able to reach a speed 
1.7 times the square root of its length. So a 4.5 metre, non- 
planing amphibian can never plough through the water at 
anything greater than six knots or so. 

Someone who successfully addressed that is New Zealand 
entrepreneur Alan Gibbs, who gave me a far more exciting 
ride about 10 years ago in his rather brilliant Gibbs Aquada 
amphibious sports car. It featured a rear-mounted, rear-drive 
engine and had all of its mechanical ancillaries contained 
within a streamlined glass-fibre V-hull. 

The masterstroke, however, was that nifty hydraulic 
joints enabled all four wheels to fold up into the bodywork, 
reducing drag and turning the car into a genuine speedboat. 
The Aquada would touch lOOmph on the road and even 
looked quite good, resembling a fat-arsed Mazda MX5. Once 
on the water, the engine switched over seamlessly to drive 
a water j et that offered a cruising speed of about 30 knots. 

Sir Richard Branson was an early Aquada adopter (he 
bought number six) and used it to set a record for crossing 
the English Channel. But, as you might have gleaned from 
the use of the past tense, production proved decidedly limited 
and ground to a halt in 2004. Gibbs Technologies does, 
however, now make an amphibious quad bike called the 
Quadski (see panel, far right). 

The latest amphibious vehicle to cause a serious splash, 
however, is the New Zealand-built Sealegs, which counts 
Boat International^ very own Bear Grylls among its celebrity 
owners. While far more high-speed RIB than car, it is 
genuinely amphibious thanks to a trio of small diameter, 
retractable wheels that, when deployed, allows the Sealegs 
to be casually driven up a beach or slipway. In truth, the 
amphibious car dream has never gone away and it is a very 
cool concept. The question is: would you buy one? □

YACHT: Grace LENGTH: 48.4m 
YEAR: 2004 LOCATION: Oslo 


What's happening? 

We're laid up for the winter. Next summer, though, 
we're planning to cruise north Norway. 

Are you having any work done? 

We have a policy of continuous maintenance and 
upgrading throughout the year, the goal 
being that she must look new every 
day. Obviously, varnishing and 
painting have to wait a few 
months until temperatures go 
up again. 

• How is the berth? 

We are moored in a 
sheltered area alongside a 
modern quay in the centre 




of Oslo. We are close to the central station, the main 
shopping street and the opera building. Grace offers 
all the enjoyable comforts of a town house. We can 
receive guests, go to concerts and try all the good 
restaurants that are part of urban life after spending 
the other seasons in the Arctic areas of northern 
Norway. Past winters we have done the same in 
Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp and London 
What can you see? 

The stunningly modern opera building on our port side 
and the old stock market to starboard 

• What's the weather like? 

We have had solid ice all around the hull already and 
layers of snow on deck. But Grace is Ice Class and has 
very good insulation, and her double-heating system 
keeps us very comfortable 
When will you come out of winter hibernation? 
Weather and ice permitting we should be sailing 
again by the end of March 





What can you see? 

We are anchored in a sheltered bay on the coast of Kos, 
looking at a deserted beach with green hills rearing up 
behind it. Not a soul in sight 

What's been the highlight? 

Just the feeling of having the water mostly to ourselves. 
Even at this time of year the weather is pleasantly warm, 
and the tourists haven't arrived yet! 

• Have you made any discoveries? 

There are always new restaurants to discover and it 
would take a lifetime to explore every bay and cove 

• Which area of the boat are you using most? 

The aft deck and flybridge are ideal for relaxing at anchor 

• Which toy is seeing the most use? 

The tender is busy ferrying people to and from the 
beach, and there may be some waterskiing later 

• What's the chef been cooking up? 

Grilled bream and mullet for lunch, followed by pastries, 
for which Turkey is famous 

• Are the locals friendly? 

Always. There's a long tradition of hospitality to seafarers 
and a shared respect for the sea 

• Why do you like cruising here? 

The sense of history here is extraordinary. Seeing 
the ruined temples and amphitheatres makes it an 
experience of which I never tire 


Why did you lay-up here? 

Palma has good weather over the 
winter and STP is a great facility to get 
work done 

• Is it a good location? 

Palma is a beautiful, interesting city. We are there 
each June for the Superyacht Cup, which is a fun event 
with close racing. The last two years, the J Class yachts 
have also been there and they are a splendid sight 

• Do you visit often? 

Not really, as all our trips to Europe are focused on 
Atalante /, our new yacht in-build at Claasen. I have just 
been to North Sails in Minden, Nevada to see how they 
make our new 3Di sails. Fascinating technology 

• Are you getting any work done? 

Yes, we are pulling the rig to do the five-year survey. We 
will do some varnishing and the bottom paint but nothing 
major is needed as our crew keep her in top condition 

• When do you plan to come out of winter hibernation? 
We should be ready to go at the end of April 

What are your plans for summer? 

We are excited to launch and christen the new Atalante, 
a 38.5m Hoek-designed sloop. Built by the same team 
as our current boat, she will be stunning. We plan a 
christening in Malta or Palma and then will cruise the 
South of France and over to Italy

On board 
with 



(well, hisyacht, anyway) 


She was the stunning beauty 
that lit up Skyfall - not 
Bond girl Berenice Marlohe 
but Dogukan Boyaci’s 
spectacular 56 metre Regina. 
Stewart Campbell meets the 
28-year-old Turk who gave 
Daniel Craig an experience (and 
a shower) he’ll never forget 



►“WHEN I LEAVE THEY’RE GOING TO KILL YOU,” thehauntedbeautySeverine 
purrs at James Bond in a Macau casino, leading him to glance at the three bodyguards watching 
nearby. “If you survive, I’m on the Chimera. North harbour. Berth seven.” With a vampish smile, 
the femme fatale from 2012’s Skyfall stands and wishes Bond luck. The secret agent raises his 
Martini glass to the three heavies before quickly dispatching two of them with a briefcase and 
leaving the third to become dinner for a hungry Komodo dragon. 

Cut to Chimera. Severine paces the yacht’s saloon before stepping into a steaming shower. 
And we all know what happens next. 

Only a few people were in on the secret of that now famous shower scene, and one of them 
was Dogukan Boyaci, the 28-year-old vice-chairman of Pruva Yachting, manufacturer and 
owner of the 56 metre superyacht known in the film as Chimera, but in reality as Regina. Up

until that moment all the shots on board had 
been legitimate, but the film crew couldn’t 
get all their gear below deck for Bond and 
Severine’s moment in the shower so it had to 
be done in a studio. That small embellishment 
aside, it was Regina in all her glory up there on 
the silver screen and Boyaci, her indecently 
young owner, couldn’t have been more proud. 

“We thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime 
chance for our company,” he says, still clearly 
energised by the fact that it is his boat that’s 
been immortalised. “James Bond is 
one of the biggest trademarks in the 
world and to use our yacht was a great 
opportunity. It led to lots of enquiries 
and Regina had wonderful charter 
seasons in the Med and Caribbean. Just 
after the movie came out we got dozens 
of charter enquiries, and it’s still going 
on. Now all our clients and brokers know 
Regina as the ‘James Bond yacht’.” 

In the film, we’re treated to sweeping 
shots of Regina as she leans elegantly 
with the wind on the approach to the 
island lair of bad-guy Raoul Silva. 

Bond joins Severine on deck, where the 
severe-faced henchmen and desolate 
island in the distance do a great job of 
highlighting the beauty of this classic- 
looking ketch. 

She was launched in 2011 for charter, 
to an exterior design by Turkey’s Ayberk 
Apaydm and an interior by Aylin Ors. 

“The aim was to build a classic yacht 
using only natural materials that would 
be ultra comfortable for the charter 
guest,” Boyaci says. “She had to be really 
strong in sailing and completely different 
from the normal gulet.” She achieves 
that with her Roaring Twenties charm 
and big square deckhouse, which covers an 
expansive saloon that was transformed into 
Severine’s bedroom for Skyfall. 

Boyaci says it took his company a month 
to get the yacht ready for the film. “We did lots 
of modifications. It was really very difficult to 
prepare the yacht for them but we succeeded 
finally.” Soft furnishings had to be changed 
and some re-upholstering was required inside 
and out. Up top, meanwhile, the rigging was 
altered to provide the camera with open views 
of the deck. It was all done in collaboration 
with EON Productions, maker of Bond films, 
which did a lot of filming for Skyfall in Turkey, 
particularly around Istanbul and Fethiye. 
Regina was chosen by EON almost by chance:

one of the Turkish production company’s 
workers had seen her cruising in Gocek, and 
EON approached Burgess to find out more 
about her. 

It took eight days for filming to wrap on the 
yacht and the actors were on board every day, 
along with director Sam Mendes, although 
they stayed ashore at night. They wouldn’t 
have been disappointed with the yacht’s digs, 
though, with her six comfy cabins housing 
12 guests. Boyaci doesn’t have any stories of 
actors throwing TVs overboard or going wild 
on raki, and instead reports that the two stars 
- Daniel Craig and Berenice Marlohe - were 
“very polite people”. They loved the yacht, 
according to Boyaci, telling him that Regina 
was “quality and luxury”. 

Boyaci is a lucky man, therefore, to be able 
to spend so much time on such a boat. Though 
the yacht is offered first and foremost for 
charter, he always makes sure to spend two 
weeks on board each year - one week in the 
Med and one in the Caribbean. He spends 
another week on board Primadonna, his 
company’s 21.5 metre gulet. You might think 
that 28 is too young to be in such an enviable 
position but Boyaci, son of Pruva founder 
Bedirhan Boyaci, was not just gifted a top 
job. He says he started “at the lowest level, 


in the charter department”, when he was 22, 
straight out of university. He was eventually 
promoted to vice-chairman in mid-2014 and 
is loving the position he occupies. So far, his 
youth isn’t working against him. “I always feel 
very young but I have not encountered any 
problems. I respect people with experience 
but young people should be given a chance.” 

At the time of writing Regina was in the 
British Virgin Islands, enjoying another 
successful charter season and it was near 
here that Boyaci recently spent time on the 
yacht. He flew over to hook up with her at the 
Antigua Charter Yacht Show in December, 
which handily is also his favourite place in the 
Caribbean. He frequents Catherine’s Cafe 
Plage - “delicious food, pleasant atmosphere 
and a very nice beach” - and the island’s 
Abracadabra restaurant, where Italian food 
always precedes a night of dancing. By the 
time you read this Boyaci will already have 
jetted back to the Caribbean for another week 
aboard Regina, this time around St Maarten 
and St Barths. 

Living in Bodrum, Pruva’s vice-chairman 
gets to see one of his other loves only once a 
month - the football club Galatasaray. But he 
plans to travel with the team next season and 
watch them compete in Europe’s premier club 


competition, the Champions League. 

In the meantime there’s a busy boat 
manufacturing and charter business to run. 
In the sheds at the moment is a 37 metre 
sailing yacht and the company is doing 
research and development on a 45 metre 
explorer, which is a break from the more 
traditional gulets it is better known for. The 
first gulet it produced, in 1996, was named 
Dogukan. But this boatbuilding scion says he 
is most attracted to modern explorer yachts, 
especially Oceanco’s 81 metre Alfa Nero and 
the latest output from Icon. On the sailing 
yacht side, he admires the sleek lines of 
Alloy’s 67 metre Vertigo. 

It’s unlikely you’ll see Bond on a big 
modern superyacht such as this any time 
soon, unless it’s to take out a bad guy. But 
that’s just fine. A classic fictional character 
needs a classic yacht, even one that was built 
as recently as 2011. In one of the last shots 
of Regina in Skyfall, we see her from the 
air, beautiful and poised as she sails easily 
towards what we soon find out is Severine’s 
doom. Boyaci could be forgiven, though, for 
not caring too much about this sad twist in 
the plot. He was too busy smiling. “To see our 
yacht on the Hollywood stage? Well, what can 
I say? It was just an incredible feeling.” a 


Daniel Craig loved theyacht, according 
to Boyaci, telling him Regina was ‘ quality and luxury ’

Software mogul Jim Clark wants line honours. 

But does his new radical supermaxi have what it takes to go up against the best?

OWNERS’ CLUB 



omanche is a boat that belongs at the 
front. The image on the previous pages shows her tearing along - ahead 
of Sydney Hobart legend Wild Oats XI, a feat that surprised everyone 
watching. It was an advantage the brand new 30.5 metre Hodgdon 
speed machine was able to maintain all the way to the Bass Strait 
during the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart. But when 30-knot winds failed 
to materialise, the more slender Wild Oats slipped past Comanche and 
into the lead, a position she held all the way to Hobart for victory and 
her eighth line honours. Second place is never going to be good enough 
for Comanche s owner, software mogul Jim Clark, but it was a minor 
miracle his yacht was there at all. She was only launched in September, 
so the famously brutal race represented a kind of masochistic 
shakedown for a yacht designed for one thing - to win. 

Think Laser dinghy or 49er morphed with rocket ship and you’ll 
get some idea of the qualities of Comanche. At the yard, the racer was 
partially hidden behind two larger yachts with immaculate pedigrees, 
Meteor and Artemis, but Comanche's square bow and carbon sprit jutted 
out beyond them, drawing the eye away from the varnished teak of her 
neighbours to a lean sailing machine intended to go as fast as possible 
powered only by the wind. 

Sailing legend Ken Read, who also happens to be the president 
of North Sails, managed the project from day one for Clark. Built at 
Hodgdon Yachts in Maine, Comanche had a hand-picked design and 
engineering team of international experts. It also had a construction 
schedule that raised eyebrows from the first day Clark talked to Boat 
International about the radical project during the America’s Cup 
Superyacht Regatta in San Francisco, September 2013. 

Comanche launched one year later and after stepping the mast in 
Newport, Rhode Island, and just two weeks of sailing trials, including 
a 600-mile qualifying sail to Charleston, 

South Carolina, the boat was packed aboard a 
cargo ship and sent to Australia to compete in 
the Sydney Hobart, which starts each year on 
Boxing Day. 

Clark and his Australian wife, Kristy Hinze- 
Clark, met the boat in Sydney for its short re- 
commissioning, Hinze-Clark racing aboard the 
boat in a harbour tune-up event on 9 December

the right result: top speed 



2 014, where the yacht placed second despite poor conditions. The 
tabloids had a field-day, captioning photos with, “The supermodel 
and the supermaxi” and “She’s got legs” in reference to Hinze-Clark’s 
modelling career. These days she is a businesswoman, director for the 
Australian Nature Conservancy and the mother of two girls. 

In our exclusive interview with Clark, shortly before the race 
begins, we ask simply: “Why?” 

“It’s a hobby,” he says, “I like the supermaxis, they are like Volvo 
60s on steroids.” Clark appears to be done with the J Class - his 42m 
Hanuman is up for sale - and is not a huge fan of what he calls the 
“multihull phase” of the America’s Cup with its reduced crew numbers. 
“The old sailing community is in monohulls and it’s nice to keep the 
guys engaged - there are lots of good sailors in the supermaxis and the 
guys are a lot of fun.” 

When Clark decided on a supermaxi, his plan was to go for line 
honours rather than wins on corrected time, and speed/distance 
records that could be set for yachts with human powered winches. 

“I don’t want any of that record stuff with an asterisk that says push- 
button winches,” Clark scoffs. With this target, Clark and Read 
embarked on a “design experiment” for a yacht that could sail 30 
knots or more on a broad reach. The experiment pushed them to some 
extreme stats, which Clark says were run through CFD tests and 
simulations time and again. 

“The 25-foot (7.6 metre) beam saves weight,” Read says. “By going 
wider, we can have less weight in the keel to keep the same righting 

moment, thus we will go faster.” This thinking 
is carried over into the keel itself, which is solid 
stainless steel and not welded. With a 6.7 metre 
draught, the keel can be two tonnes lighter 
than a comparable keel on a boat with half the 
draught. The governing factor was the depth 
of Rhode Island’s Newport harbour where the 
boat will be based when not chasing records. 
“With the keel canted to one side we can just get 
to our berth,” Read says. 

The downside to beam is increased surface 
drag when sailing flat in light air. “Being 
considerably wider than other boats, we need 
to be heeling at 11 to 13 degrees to present the 
same beam,” says Clark. “In light air, we are at 
a disadvantage. When the wind cooperates, 
there is no question the boat is explosive.” 






Hodgdon, the oldest boatbuilding business in the US, might seem 
like an odd choice if you don’t know that part of the yard’s annual 
output is high-tech military vessels and another part is carbon 
fibre limo tenders. In fact, Hodgdon is quite skilled at innovative 
construction techniques and when Tim Hodgdon agreed to build an 
oven to cook Comanche s carbon fibre hull, the deal was struck. The 
yard’s location also made it a good gathering stop for its far-flung team. 

Some critics have said the boat is too extreme and too powerful to 
handle, but Clark just laughs at this and suggests we “ask Kenny”. 

“Yeah, it’s still an unknown but I’m not overly concerned,” he adds. 
“The hull is well baked and it’s been ultrasounded and X-rayed. There 
is a fuse in some of the loads so that nothing super bad can happen. But 
you can’t have a fuse in the rigging... Some of those termination points 
on the rig are kind of scary,” Clark says. 

That rig, which rises 47 metres above the waterline, is more than 50 
per cent of the length aft from the bow, a surprising configuration but 
based on model testing for best all-around performance with the foil 
and appendages. 

Also innovative are the daggerboards outboard of the mast and 
slightly forward of it. By canting the keel and putting the lee side 
daggerboard fully down, the boat generates enough lift to keep the 
angle of leeway to a minimum or crab up to a mark. 

The wide cockpit, full of grinder pedestals, hydraulic sail controls 
and sophisticated LED panels, gives the impression of a workhouse 
with modern instruments of torture. In a way, that is what they are. 
Grinders will work these six pedestals to turn the Harken winches. 

The only push-button winch on board is used to raise the mainsail. 
Once that sail is up the halyard is locked off and the winch isn’t used. 

The winch pedestals are set slightly inboard and Read explains 
that when sailing on other 30 metre yachts he found that waves 
coming inboard at 30 knots or so would sweep the helmsman or winch 
grinders off their feet. “I have fetched up in the corner of the cockpit 
with pieces of steering wheel in my hands,” he says. Thus, by having 10 
feet more beam than other 30 metre boats, there is space to put people 
and gear in a safer location with the added benefit of space for sails to 
be temporarily stored outboard of the pedestals on the high side. 

Another interesting option is set right into the deck. Small black 
plugs cover screw holes that allow a dodger to cover both hatches. “On 
long distance races, we wanted the option to erect a dodger to keep the 
crew safe when on deck,” Read says. A slot in the cockpit sole just aft of 
the dodger allows the steering wheel to be moved forward, allowing 
the helmsman to stand behind the dodger for more protection. 

Step below and you can see how much weight has been saved. The 
single-skin carbon fibre hull and foam cored framing is fully exposed. 
It is mostly black with white non-skid patches. The forward end of the 
vessel is totally open, to store sails. Directly under the cockpit on either 
side are the crew berths, which keep the crew centre of gravity aft, 
close to the position they would be in when on deck; thus the trim of 


The wide cockpit, full of grinder 
pedestals, hydraulic sail controls 
and sophisticated LED panels, gives 
the impression of a workhouse with 
modern instruments of torture 



the yacht is not affected by off-watch crew moving around. 

Directly under the cockpit sole is the navigator’s area with barely 
space to sit up. “The only requirement that navigator Stan Honey had 
was that we made the navigator’s seat 1.8 metres long so that he didn’t 
have to fight the crew for a berth,” Read says. 

Talking to Read one gets a sense he is completely at ease with a 
project of this magnitude and the commitment it will take to sail it to 
its potential. He has sailed around the world with several of his present 
crew and all had input into the new boat’s design. That counts for a lot of 
experience, in addition to the French design team of Guillaume Verdier 
and VPLP (Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prevost). “Without 
the designers we would probably have built a far more conservative 
boat,” Read says, “but with their help we have taken a leap forward.” 

On deck, Comanche is also radically different. All halyards go to 
the masthead, where they are locked off in the same style that was 
pioneered in the 12 Metre Class. But on Comanche, tension is applied 
on the sail luff by hydraulic rams mounted on the foredeck and by 
pulling on the sail at the tack. “It reduces weight aloft,” Read explains, 
“and allows complete sail adjustment from the [safety of the] cockpit.”

Another advanced feature not 
often seen on smaller craft is that the 
jib tracks run transversely instead 
of fore and aft. “The clews for each 
headsail are in the same place and 
we might use the same sail for going 
hard to windward and when easing off 
onto a reach. With this arrangement 
all we need do is ease the track car to 
leeward when coming onto a reach. 
This enables us to keep power on 
without altering the shape of the sail 
when changing course relative to the 
wind,” Read notes. 

The deck-stepped carbon fibre 
mast has swept spreaders to eliminate 
the need for adjustable running 
backstays. In some ways this is a 
disadvantage in that the masthead 
cannot be moved fore and aft when sailing up and downwind, but 
it eliminates the need for checkstays and runners. The masthead 
position is controlled with backstays to each corner of the transom 
and lines that are led into the mast from the backstays to control 
the rig bend. 

“I started this boat thinking I could race it,” says Clark wistfully. 

A degenerative condition in his ankles that makes standing 
uncomfortable has recently cropped up in his wrists as well. “They 
made a seat for me where I can drive it,” he says, but he opted out of 
the Sydney Hobart to make room for America’s Cup-winning skipper 
Jimmy Spithill to assist Read on the helm. 

“I feel confident we’ll start getting line honours and next summer 
we’ll do the transatlantic race and see how that goes,” promises 
Clark. “I’m optimistic.”

GREAT 

EXPECTATIONS 


Comanche's skipper Ken Read on the yacht’s 
second-place finish in the Sydney Hobart 


F or all practical purposes, we shouldn’t have been on the 
starting line of the Rolex Sydney Hobart, given the time 
constraints of designing, building and trying to shake down 
not only a brand new boat, but also a brand new concept. We 
had our share of gremlins, but they were all little ones, which was just 
an unbelievable pat on the back to the design, engineering and build 
teams from Verdier/VPLP, Hodgdon and North Sails Design Services 
- because really it was nothing short of a small miracle. 

We - especially Jim and Kristy Clark - hoped that a project like 
Comanche would turn heads and get people, maybe even outside of the 
sport, to start looking at sailing as something fashionable, fun, fast and 
cool. And this project, at least in its infancy, has done that more than 
any of us could have imagined. 

We had read, heard and seen the start of Sydney Hobart races in the 
past. I could only imagine what it was going to be like. Is it like a Volvo 
start? Is it like an America’s Cup start? Lord knows we’ve done plenty 
of both of those. But this has a different feel to it, a different vibe; it 
seemed like not just the whole city but the whole country knew about 
this start, watched it live on television and were lining the harbour 
shores. This unbelievable moment for all of our sailing careers was 
made even better by how the boat lit up: we couldn’t have chosen a 
better wind angle to show off the boat to the world. That was about 
as fun as it gets. 

So how did the boat perform? First of all, the boat is in essence 
exactly as advertised. As soon as you crack sheets, it lights up. I talked 
to the guys from Wild Oats after the race and they were most surprised 
about how well this boat goes upwind. We had never gone up against 
another boat before, and all of a sudden we go off the starting line 
and take off, going upwind and sailing away. But we can still improve. 
When all is said and done, we were still ahead of one of the best, if not 
the best, upwind 100-footers (30 metres) in the world. 

Waves are the biggest challenge of the race. That’s what separates 
the Sydney Hobart from other races. They are always there, they are 
always angry and there’s no rhyme or reason to them. Whether you’re 
going upwind, reaching or downwind, it’s a different animal down 
there. It was awful for a while as I was just waiting for something big 
to break. 

Then we sailed into the light air with huge lumpy seas and 
Comanche performed as expected as well. There was a combination of 
factors: we were holding off Wild Oats with the masthead Code 0 up 
until it dropped down into really puffy, fluky wind of under six knots 
true wind speed. Mix together the huge leftover head seas that day and 
it honestly just couldn’t have been worse for us. The more we sailed 


The 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart: a true 
test for any boat, let alone one that’s still 
working out the bugs. Second place is 
little short of astounding - but owner 
Jim Clark still wants more

WHAT DID IT FEEL LIKE TO WATCH 
COMANCHE CROSS THE FINISH LINE? 

We felt immensely proud of the boys. We 
got some very bad luck in the middle of 
the race which allowed Wild Oats to get 
a long distance ahead. Pegging back the 
lead to within lOnm was no easy feat. 
HOW INVOLVED IN THE 
CONSTRUCTION WERE YOU? 

I got involved with the aesthetics.

Jim and I did together. 

WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED NOT 
TO RACE YOURSELF? 

Yes I was, but the timing was wrong for 
me. I have an infant and toddler to think 
about ; Pm stillfeeding Harper. 

It was the right decision. 

HOW MUCH SAILING WILL YOU DO 
ON HER IN FUTURE? 

We have a full-on programme set for her. 
How much I will do aboard my self will 
depend where the race takes place, the 
length of the race and the weather. 

CAN YOU SUM UP THE SENSATION OF 
SAILING FAST ON COMANCHE ? 

She certainly getsyour adrenaline going. 
After racing our J, Hanuman, it’s like 
being in an FI Ferrari compared to a 
classic car on a Sunday drive. 

DOES IT COMPARE TO ANY OTHER 
SAILING EXPERIENCE YOU'VE HAD? 

I was fortunate enough to be invited for 
a training session aboard Team New 
Zealand’s America’s Cup effort in San 
Francisco. It’s the only time I’ve really felt 
that type of adrenaline sailing. 







south the quicker we sailed away from the high-pressure ridge that 
became the dominant feature on the racecourse. Wild Oats sailed 
into better pressure first. Game over. 

The other challenge was meeting obvious expectations of 
this programme and that is always very, very hard. Yes, we were 
disappointed to be second but I’d say thank you to Jim and Kristy’s 
total understanding of the whole thing; they’re incredibly proud of the 
whole project and they see the future. Jim and Kristy were our biggest 
fans when we hit the dock and they understand that this is a long-term 
project; we’re still working the bugs out and it was just phenomenal to 
get there in one piece, put on a good show and make it reasonably close. 

As I write this, the boat is in Melbourne and about to go on a ship 
again back to the US - it will be the most travelled young boat in history, 
I would guess. We’re trying to decide whether we do a quick winter 
schedule, maybe down in the Caribbean, or a larger work list and bring 
her up to Newport, Rhode Island, to get her ready for more of the big 
ocean race events, the great races such as the Rolex Transatlantic Race, 
Rolex Fastnet and Rolex Middle Sea. It’s going to be an exciting year. □

Started in Russia a decade ago, the story ef Graceful almost ended 
when the project hit the rocks - literally. The 82 metre superyacht 
is a remarkable boat with a remarkable story 



Words - Marilyn Mower Photography - Jeff Brown/Superyacht Media 







I f there is one superyacht that deserves to star in her own 
Hollywood production, it’s Graceful. For there was a 
time when this 82 metre motor yacht from Blohm+Voss 
was anything but graceful. And nor was she always 82 
metres. It’s the story of one owner’s battle against almost 
insurmountable odds to get his boat made. 

Project A1331, designed by Agat Design Bureau 
in St Petersburg, Russia, started life in May 2005 at 
Sevmash shipyard, a renowned builder of Russian military ships and 
submarines. Her owner, working with Dorries Maritime Services as 
technical consultant, had approached the project in an interesting way 
by buying and supplying many of the components - from the interior 
design to the MTU engines - himself. The vessel was actually hull 
No.2 of a two-boat yacht package for a company called Baltika and, 
when construction slowed, the owner and Dorries approached 
Blohm+Voss about finishing the project. 

Its build captain Alexander Mozhayskiy explains: “[The owner] 
wanted the boat in February 2014. If he couldn’t finish the boat in 
Russia, Blohm+Voss in Hamburg was his first choice. He knows well 
the ships that yard has launched.” 

But then the unthinkable happened. At the end of October 2010 the 
empty hull, its top and stern decked over against the elements, began 
its journey under tow by tug from Russia to Germany. During the trip, 
weather conditions deteriorated, with reports saying the seas may have 
reached nine metres. The hull, being blown around, broke free and 
pitched up on a rocky shore near Vesteralen, Norway. Despite driving 
sleet, mariners were able to re-establish the towing cable, but again the 
yacht broke free and grounded spectacularly beyond semi-submerged 
boulders. All the tug could do was stand by waiting for a break in the 
weather. After Norwegian authorities were assured there was no fuel 
aboard and thus no danger of pollution, the issue became how to free 
the hull and get on with the project. Days passed. 

When the storm abated, and with Mozhayskiy himself playing a role 
in the rescue, the rumpled but still floating steel hull was reconnected 
to tugs and towed a short distance to Alsvag where it was evaluated and 
lifted onto a barge for Hamburg, Germany. 



Above: a large helicopter operation 
(everything but fuelling) was a 
prerequisite for theyacht and 
is one of the factors that drove 
Blohm+Voss to lengthen the 
original design. With the rails 
removed, it’s a sturdy landing pad 
for the owner’s twin-engine EC135.

the deck below divide dining and 
lounging functions and blend 
harmoniously with the profile

Jan Kees Pilaar, managing director of Blohm+Voss, says: 
“Originally, we planned to handle the yachts fit-out in our refit and 
repair division. When we saw the damage in November, we thought: 
‘Well, we can repair it before we fit it out, but maybe it makes no sense.’” 

Achim Lamprecht, project manager at Blohm+Voss Repair, 
says: “We had looked over the original architect drawings and the 
modifications by the shipyard and made our own calculations. Frankly, 
we were a little bit concerned about its stability. We thought, to fit it all 
in in a good way, the boat should be about two metres wider and maybe 
10 metres longer. 

“At one point, when we were discussing the difficulty and cost of 
repairing damage to the hull, the owner said: ‘Forget it all. I stop the 
project.’ We were determined not to let that happen. He should have 
his dream,” Lamprecht says. 

Then something else unthinkable happened: Blohm+Voss decided 
to turn the project on its head. “Instead of thinking about the project 
as either a repair or as a new build, we said: ‘It’s really both’,” says sales 
manager Isabelle Huet. “We pulled down the barrier between the 
shipyard’s new build and repair divisions and set up a new structure all 
working together, pulling in subcontractors and our own people. That’s 
the only way we could deliver this yacht on time and on budget.” 

The yard rallied round the idea. “As repair guys, we can also build 
a ship,” Lamprecht told his crew. Between Christmas and New Year 


“I normally do projects the size of the Queen 
Mary; it’s one step at a time. For Graceful 
we worked furiously, all the trades at once. 
In 20 years, I’ve never seen anything like it” 


2010, engineers, accountants, estimators and leaders of the various 
trades burnt the midnight oil to prepare a new GA, new engineering 
drawings, a steel salvage plan and a schedule of work with a very 
strict timeline. They would reuse almost 50 tonnes of steel from the 
Sevmash hull to keep the original build certificate valid, but the new 
dimensions would be 82 by 13.9 metres. The profile was much the same 
but the ends of the boat got longer and the helipad gained room for 
safer operation of a bigger bird. 

The new plan, with numbers attached and beautiful new 
renderings, was presented to the owner at the close of the holiday 
season. He signed off on the “new” project almost immediately and 
gave his project a name. 

“One of the engineers looked at the new rendering and remarked 
to Alexander that the new drawing looked ‘so graceful’,” says Huet. 
“The captain shared the comment with the owner while they were 
discussing the proposal and the name stuck.” 

With the size and depth of the builder’s massive engineering 
department working in its favour, fabrication was able to begin in 
April. In addition to addressing the stability issue with extra beam, 
they also added bilge keels to complement the active fin stabilisation. 

“I normally do projects the size of the (cruise ship) Queen Mary and 
it’s one step at a time. For Graceful we worked furiously, all the trades 
at once and the Lloyd’s surveyors, too. In my 20 years, I’ve never seen 
anything like it,” Lamprecht says. 

H2 Yacht Design came with the project, as the firm had done the 
original design for Baltika. “It was a good thing and an unusual 
thing to have the chance to go back and revisit our original design 
from 2005,” says H2’s principal Jonny Horsfield. “One of the first 
things we did was change the steeply slanted windows of the bridge 
and the saloon aft to vertical. Originally the deck heights and the 
stairs had been a bit of a struggle for the Russian naval architects, 
who were designing it like a patrol boat; although that old-school, 
patrol boat approach served us well with the single level engine 
room. We inherited a lot of spaciousness from that, which offset the 
requirements for the indoor pool.” 

And what a pool. That and the helipad were the yacht’s main drivers. 
The pool, 15 metres long, three metres wide and 1.8 metres deep, 
occupies the space on the main deck where a saloon and dining area 
are typically. While this deck still has a modestly sized formal dining 
room, the saloon-cum-piano lounge, a petite and luxurious tea room 
and outdoor dining area were moved upstairs.

“The main deck saloon typically doesn’t get that much use anyway,” 
says Horsfield, “but still we wanted to create some extra use for the 
pool area, especially since you can’t use it when the boat is under way. 
We suggested using it for both a theatre, with a drop-down screen and 
projector, and as a party space. The bottom of the pool rises to become 
a dance floor, with glass panels that change colour. The cabinets where 
towels are stacked in pool mode become vodka bars in party mode.” 

The pool itself is a marvel designed and built by EnPro, of 
Bremerhaven, Germany, together with Blohm+Voss. The scissor 
lift that brings the floor up is powered by fresh-water hydraulics, 
so if there’s a leak it won’t be hydraulic fluid oozing into the pool. 

Its stainless steel tub is faced in mosaic tile. Tender garages flank 
the depths of the pool below, housing a Novurania and a custom 
Yachtwerft Meyer limo tender. 

“The pool room was really the last place we styled and it’s a bit more 
relaxed and contemporary than the rest of the yacht, but more smart 
than a beach club,” says Horsfield. “Our design brief was interesting: 
something timeless. The owner is a very confident person. He knows 
what he likes and he’s not a slave to trends. Loher was the interior 
subcontractor and they offered him a fantastic collection of rare 
veneers for the panelling and furniture. For example, we used rare 
white sycamore for the raised and fielded panelling with mother-of- 
pearl inlays in the main-deck master suite. 

“The mouldings are also of elegant taste without becoming 
tiresome. It is very rich but still very light. The master bath is decorated 
with sugar onyx and four different accent stones. In the VIP guest 
cabins, we chose a more modern style, with elegance brought by the 
materials. Boats are dull if the style is the same all the way through.” 

A second master suite is on the lower deck and features a large 
opening terrace just above the sea. Three twin guest cabins share the 
lower accommodation corridor. Horsfield also changed it up with chic 
touches such as tooled leather, tapestry walls, marquetry, marble and 
stainless steel with ebony and untreated teak for accents. Two gel- 
burning fireplaces create a cosy atmosphere, a necessity for a yacht that 
will spend much of its time in temperate rather than tropical climes. 

When it came to the bridge the repair team created a 1:1 mock-up of 
the space, using full-size pictures of all the equipment faces to work out 
the layout with the captain. “That’s the sort of stuff we do all the time 
when we update a ship,” says Lamprecht. 

The captain chose the helm’s black and brown leather colour 
scheme to match the shore support vehicle’s interior. Mozhayskiy 
had considerable input on crew areas, including an exercise area in

the bow to alleviate stress. “The crew have to have a way to work off 
steam and, at the same time, have a normal routine. Otherwise they are 
like cats in a box,” he says. Graceful operates with a crew of 18 but can 
accommodate 25 in total, including staff and pilots. 

The indoor pool, however, is not the only recreational area aboard 
the yacht. The helideck, built for an EC135, is linked to a reception 
deck and dining area - the most often used dining spot on the boat. 
Also on this deck, a gym and bar are forward, opening onto two 
plunge pools - one hot, one cold - next to a spa pool and sunpads. 

A sauna and a head with shower are tucked into the superstructure 
to starboard. 

Graceful's first trip was from Germany to the Black Sea and the 
efficiency of the yacht was impressive; she arrived with nearly 45 per 
cent of her fuel remaining. At 12 knots, the captain calculates he has 
a range of 10,000 nautical miles. 

Although the shipyard hit the delivery target and Graceful sea- 
trialled in December 2013, furniture maker Loher’s financial stumble 
in 2013 and the company’s subsequent absorption by Vedder, wrecked 
the schedule. But that was really just a minor hurdle in an epic 
production that at one point was, literally, on the rocks. But like all 
good films, this one has a happy ending - with the yacht-that-almost- 
wasn’t a mere two months late after a staggering 23-month build 
schedule. What scriptwriter could have come up with that? a

iLuren Bacall was 
Uu love ijI I hi [upline v i t’s life, although 
as she wisely acknowledged she had to share 
his affections. “If ever I had a woman to be 
jealous of,” she wrote in her autobiography, 

By Myself, “she was the Santana .” This was 
Bogart’s yacht, a pretty and slippery 16.7 
metre yawl that Bacall said “enslaved” her 
film-star husband. 

Santana is one of many yachts with a 
Hollywood history that have survived their 
celebrated owners. These vessels share a 
remarkable gift for overcoming age, neglect, 
even, in one case, a supposed ghost, to sail 
again. Restored classics are commonplace 
now but there remains an enchantment 
about boats that are linked to film stars such 
as Bogart that seems to speak of something 
approaching immortality. Just as their owners 
and guests live on in the films we still watch, 
so do the boats and the memories they hold. 

Imagine sailing on the yacht aboard which 
Grace Kelly (by then Princess Grace) spent 
her honeymoon - well, you can. How about a 
night in the sumptuous suite where Aristotle 
Onassis seduced Greta Garbo? It’s possible. 
What sailor with a speck of salt in their veins 
wouldn’t love to see Errol Flynn’s magnificent 
36 metre schooner reaching in a fresh breeze? 
She’s sailing in the Med. 

These yachts and others like them still 
carry that sprinkling of stardust from the 
silver screen. The whiff of glamour lingers 
and lends a unique appeal. 

Ingrid Bergman, Richard Burton and 
David Niven were frequent guests aboard 
Bogart’s Santana. Niven recalled one such 
occasion in his memoir, The Moon's a Balloon. 
Frank Sinatra was on a chartered motor yacht 
nearby and came up to raft alongside. His boat 
had a piano and an impromptu concert took 
place there and then, with Sinatra singing 
right through the night. “People from other 
boats rowed over in dinghies,” Niven wrote, 
“and sat in a circle around the two yachts, 
under a full moon, listening, until the sky 
began to grow light and the singing ended. 
Then they quietly rowed away.” 




It’s tempting to imagine such moments 
seeping into the very fabric of Santana's 
wooden hull. She is back to her original 
rig as a schooner now, under the ownership 
of a group of sailors from the US West 
Coast. They have embarked on a complete 
restoration that should see her sailing 
again this year. 

Bogart would have approved. He used 
Santana most weekends and holidays for 
10 years up to his death, aged 57, in 1957 and 
much of the sailing was around Catalina, 
off the California coast. Bogie raced, too, 
finishing first in his class in the San Clemente 
Island Race in 1950. “Bogie was in love ... and 
truly had everything he’d ever dreamed of,” 
Bacall said of her husband’s boat. 

Santana is clearly steeped in Hollywood 
folklore but if ever there was a yacht crackling 
with the presence of screen gods and 
goddesses it is Christina O. This 
99 metre vessel was 
built for the Canadian 
navy, sold off at the end 
of WWII and bought 
in 1954 by Aristotle 
Onassis, a Greek ship 
owner who would 
become the world’s 
richest man. 


Onassis used a big slice of his fortune to 
turn Christina, named after his daughter, 
into a floating palace. Panelling from 
impoverished English stately homes was 
used for cabins; a mosaic decorated the 
bottom of the pool, which rose to deck level 
to become a dance floor; and a grand piano, 
played by his lover, the opera singer Maria 
Callas, stood in the saloon. In the bar, stools 
were covered in leather from the foreskins 
of whales. Onassis delighted in telling his 
female guests perched at the bar that they 
were “sitting on the world’s biggest penis”. 

And there were some famous women 
guests. By the 1950s Greta Garbo’s Hollywood 
career was over but her ability to enchant was 
undiminished. In 1954 The Guinness Book of 
Records named her “the most beautiful woman 
who ever lived”. Onassis, the supreme egotist, 
was captivated by her and Christina was part 
of his plan to seduce her. Garbo was invited 
aboard and soon became a 
regular guest. Arriving at 
Nice railway station, en route 
to Monaco, Garbo found that 
Onassis had laid on an entire 
orchestra to welcome her as 
she stepped off the train. 

In 1957 Onassis met Maria 
Callas. It was only natural 


Humphrey Bogart and his 
wife Lauren Bacall aboard his 
beloved 16 . 7 myawl Santana. 

As his son Stephen wrote in his 
autobiography: “While most 
people know that Bogie and Bacall 
had a great love affair, probably 
fewer know about my father’s other 
great love - sailing. Specifically, it 
was with his 55 foot sailingyacht... 
The sea was my fathers sanctuary ”

that they become lovers, he said, because “we 
are the most famous Greeks alive today”. At 
that time Christina attracted world attention, 
a floating crucible of celebrity. Onassis would 
sail her to Capri, or Venice, or perhaps to 
the island of Ithaca and throw a huge party. 
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were 
regular guests and Frank Sinatra, John 
Wayne, Peter Lawford, Grace Kelly and, in 
1963, Jackie Kennedy, wife of the President of 
the US, all joined in the exclusive fun. Jackie 
slipped aboard one night in 1963, shortly 
before her husband was assassinated, for a 
cruise that led to an affair with Onassis and, 
later, marriage. 

The yacht, like Jackie, now has an O after 
her name and is currently for charter. Camper 
& Nicholsons is listing her at £270,000 per 
week, plus expenses. 

Onassis was a great friend of Prince 
Rainier III of Monaco and, when Rainier 
married the Oscar-winning actress Grace 
Kelly in 1956, Onassis presented the couple 
with an extraordinary wedding present: 
a 44.8 metre classic motor yacht from the 
1920s. The vessel, which Rainier and Grace 
named Deo Juvante II, had been built for a 
wealthy Argentinian. It was acquired by 
Sir George Tilley, chairman of Prudential 
Insurance, in 1938, used by the British Royal 
Navy in WWII - to evacuate British troops 
from Dunkirk in 1940 and as a submarine 
chaser in the Solent - before being returned 
to Tilley after a complete restoration at her 
builder, Camper & Nicholsons. When Tilley 
died in 1951 the yacht was bought by one of 
Onassis’s companies. 

Princess Grace spent her honeymoon and 
some of the happiest moments of her early 
marriage aboard Deo Juvante II, cruising the 
Mediterranean; Corsica and Sardinia were 
favourite destinations. The vessel was sold 
in 1958 and had several owners until 2007, 
when she was bought by Quasar Expeditions, 
an adventure holiday company. Quasar 
refitted her and today she takes charter 
parties around the Galapagos Islands. As 
a nod to her Hollywood associations she 
is now named Grace. 

Elizabeth Taylor was so taken with the 
relaxed life afloat she persuaded Richard 
Burton that they should buy a yacht. So 
began one of the most colourful relationships 
between Hollywood and the sea. 

In 1967 the couple were at the height of 
their fame, adored across the world, not just 
for their talent on screen, but for the way they 
put beauty, style and astonishing wealth into 



a husband-wife package. The vessel Burton 
bought was a GL Watson-designed steam 
yacht, launched as Minona in 1906. The 
Burtons paid $192,000 for her and then 
spent six months and hundreds of 
thousands more on a complete refurbishment, 
adding artworks by Picasso, Monet and 
Degas. They renamed her Kalizma, after 
daughters Kate Burton, Liza Todd and Maria 
Burton. She had been re-engined with diesels 
and Burton wrote, with a touch of pride, that 
she could do 14 knots. 

In 1969, while Kalizma was tied up in 
Monte Carlo harbour, Burton presented his 
wife with a fabulous 69-carat diamond. He 
had bought it from Cartier for $1.1 million and 
it arrived aboard Kalizma under police escort. 
Taylor wore it for the first time a few days 
later (on a specially made necklace arranged 

While Kalizma was

Carlo harbour , Burton

with a fabulous 
69 -carat diamond, 
bought for $1.1 million 


prominently on her trademark decolletage) at 
Princess Graces 40th birthday party. 

Kalizma was the Burtons’ floating home for 
long periods during filming and was moored 
on the Thames at Rotherhithe in 1969 when 
Richard’s film Anne of the Thousand Days was 
being made. In his memoir, Richard Burton, 
My Brother, Graham Jenkins recalled that 
Kalizma was once spotted in Portofmo by one 
of Burton’s former school-friends, Gladys 
Williams. She was leading a coach party 
around the region and walked up the quay to 
see if she could spot Burton. 

Jenkins wrote that Williams gave her name 
to a guard on the yacht... 

[He] did not seem inclined to move. Then 
an unmistakeable voice boomed out from the 
lower deck. 

“Is that Gladys then?” 

Rich appeared and threw his arms around his 
visitor. It was a great reunion, performed under 
the appreciative gaze of all the coach passengers 
who crowded against the nearside windows. 


“Stay to lunch,” commanded Rich. 

“I can’t do that,” said Gladys. “Tve got all this 
lot to look after.” 

Rich surveyed the crowd scene. 

“Everybody stays for lunch,” he decided. 

“It was an afternoon to remember -four hours 
of champagne and caviar.” 

Kalizma was sold when the Burtons 
divorced (the first time, in 1974) and she is now 
owned by the Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya. 

Errol Flynn, the great swashbuckler 
himself, was also a dedicated seafarer. In 
1945 he bought a 36 metre schooner that 
had been requisitioned by the US navy for 
patrol service during WWII. The vessel was 
built in 1929, along the lines of the Canadian 
Bluenose. After major work, Flynn renamed 
her Zaca and took her on a long cruise before 
chartering her to Orson Welles for his film 
The Lady from Shanghai, starring Rita 
Hayworth. There are some terrific sailing 
shots in the film but the images of Hayworth 
on deck, at her most alluring, proved even 
more memorable. 

Flynn ended up living aboard Zaca in 
Palma, Mallorca, until his death in 1959. 

The vessel moved to Villefranche, fell into 
disrepair and then attracted a strange 
reputation. A number of people reported 
seeing a ghostly figure, resembling Flynn, 
pacing her deck. Clinking glasses and 
laughter were apparently heard in her empty 
saloon. In 1979 a Catholic and Anglican priest 
conducted a joint exorcism. Zaca was later 
bought by an Italian businessman, extensively 
restored and based in Monaco. 

Flynn would doubtless flash one of his 
dazzling smiles at the thought of his old 
boat being haunted, but Zaca and others 
are enriched by their histories. Stars of the 
modern era love boats, too, of course. The 
Cannes film festival would not be the glamfest 
it is without a sprinkling of Hollywood greats 
aboard superyachts moored along the Cote 
d’Azur. But this is a far cry from the golden age 
of Holly wood and yachting (a period from the 
late 1920s to the early 1960s). 

Witness Vijay Mallya, owner of Kalizma, 
who has a special affection for Taylor and 
Burton’s old boat. Mallya also owns the 95 
metre Indian Empress, one of the world’s 
most splendid superyachts. But can she really 
compete with a vessel that has a discreet brass 
plaque in her saloon, marking the spot where 
a Hollywood idol, inspired by his love for his 
beautiful actress wife, gave one of the most 
romantic and generous gifts in history? a

LIGHTS, 
CAMERA, BOAT! 

They can he scary, romantic, majestic and even fumy - 
and there is certainly no shortage of them - but doflms about 
yachts accurately capture the pleasures and challenges 







EDITION 


I can honestly say that I hate feature 
films that depict sailing. Almost 
every single one of them gets it 
wrong. The sails are on the wrong 
side of the boat. They say they’re 
tacking when they’re gybing - 
the terminology is always wrong. And half the 
time you can see that they’re on power.” So says 
legendary America’s Cup yachtsman Ken Read 
when asked which films best portray the sport. 

If there’s one thing Hollywood seems to 
specialise in, aside from entertainment, it’s 
dispensing with inconvenient facts in the name of 
that entertainment. Everyone has watched a film 
portraying their pet subject and shaken their head 
in amazement at just how wrong it is. Hollywood 
has disappointed serious sailors in the same way it 
disappoints serious mountain climbers. 

Read even hates All is Lost (2013), the recent 
Robert Redford film praised by critics for its 
realism. “Hitting a floating container in a drifting 
calm and tearing your boat up? I’ve sailed around 
the world twice and I’ve never seen one. And [in 
the film] it was blowing three knots! And they 
figured out a way to heel the boat the wrong way 
so it fills with water. Please!” 

Sometimes they get it right, however. There’s 
one in particular that Read does rate: the one most 
serious sailors will cite and that gets the most 
praise on sailing websites. It’s also sufficiently 
obscure that these days only serious sailors 
remember it: Carroll Ballard’s 1992 film Wind. 
Starring Matthew Modine, Jennifer Grey and 
Stellan Skarsgard, it’s actually about America’s 
Cup competitors and is loosely based on Dennis 
Connor’s retaking of the trophy in 1987. 

Wind works hard to convey the excitement 
of racing - using real boats and real crews in 
real conditions - as well as some of the basic 
technical elements of the sport, like how one 



boat can take the wind of another. Arguably it 
works so hard at getting things right that the 
storytelling suffers, and the film was not a big 
box-office success. 

Read also thought Peter Weir’s 2003 
adaptation of Patrick O’Brien’s novel Master and 
Commander “was not bad” in its depiction of 
the world of square-rigged ships - and indeed 
the filmmakers strove to make it authentic, 
even building a working replica of a late 18th- 
century frigate. 

Mike Joyce, CEO of Hargrave Custom 
Yachts in Fort Lauderdale, is also a fan of that 
film’s authenticity. “For an actual sailing film, no 
question about it, that’s my favourite,” he says. 
“The movie realistically captured everything 
about what it was like to sail the world at a time 
when there was no coast guard or satellite 
communications to help you, just you, your ship, 
and almighty God. They masterfully recreated 
my single biggest fear: to be woken out of a sound 
sleep on a stormy night by the bosun yelling, 

All hands aloft!’ after the captain ordered an 
emergency change of sail to avoid capsizing.” 

But on the downside, says Read, there are the 
Pirates of the Caribbean films. “Those ships are 
obviously not sailing and half the time the sails 
are going backwards. 

“I don’t understand why they don’t have a 
sailor sitting next to the producer (during a film’s 
planning and production). It’s always bugged the 
living crap out of me. It’s blowing the chance to 
make sailing look beautiful, more authentic and 
more exciting.” 

But there are good reasons why sailors like 
so few sailing films. It is intrinsically difficult 
to capture on film some of its challenges 
and pleasures, not least because, as sailor- 
screenwriter Mark Horowitz says, “The thing 
about sailing is that [from the outside] you can’t 


BOATING FILMOPEDIA 

From schooners to superyachts , there's 
a movie for every enthusiast 

Many boat-related films can be roughly 
divided between those in which the 
drama centres on man's struggle 
against a natural force (perfect storms, 
great white sharks, the ocean) and 
those in which the peril comes from 
other people (mutinous sailors, brutal 
captains, pirates...) 

MAN VS NATURE 

This includes some of the most popular 
films made, including Jaws (1975), The 
African Queen (1951), The Old Man and 
the Sea (1958) and James Cameron's 
Titanic (1997). 

MAN VS MAN 

This doesn't always throw up the best 
films, although many would argue that 
A Night to Remember (1958) actually 
portrays the last voyage of Titanic 
more powerfully than Cameron's film, 
as well as more accurately. 
Decades after the last pirate films 
had been made, and with maritime 
blockbusters like Errol Flynn's Captain 
Blood (1935) all but forgotten, the 
world of the great 18th century 
square-rigged ships was again evoked 
in films likeAm/sfad (1997), Pirates 
of the Caribbean (2003) and Master 
and Commander: The Far Side of the 
World (2003). 

MAN VS MAN AND NATURE 

In WWII thriller The Guns of Navarone 
(1961) a storm encountered by the Allied 
heroes on their fishing boat is more 
dangerous than the German Navy. In 
The Cruel Sea (1953) you can almost 
feel the icy water crashing over the 
bow. There's the same dual challenge 
in the various films made about the 
mutiny on the Bounty (most film buffs 
prefer the 1935 original), all of which 
depict the real-life survival struggle 
of the overthrown Captain Bligh and 
his men after they are cast away on a 
longboat in the middle of the Pacific.

actually see what’s going on, or in a race even tell 
who is ahead.” Someone who has never sailed 
and who doesn’t understand the basics of how 
sailboats use wind is not going to appreciate 
what goes into the sport. 

Add to that the fact that film can’t convey the 
smell of the sea, the feel of the wind on your face, 
the sense of flying - or falling - as a boat heels; it 
can only suggest at aching muscles, the feeling 
of freezing soaked clothes against your skin, 
the pain of hands rubbed raw. These, arguably, 
are the main reasons behind the sport’s elitist 
image and why sailing isn’t a huge success on TV 
(although computer graphics have helped explain 
it and widen its appeal) compared even to rowing. 

And what about superyachts or other 
oceangoing craft? It can be a fun game to play 
while you watch: figuring out 
what’s real and what’s not, or 
spotting the goofs. That huge 
onboard bathroom for Skyfall’s 
shower scene in 2012? A film 
set. The actual owner of 56 
metre Regina tells us all about 
it on page 88. 

What about that turbo- 
charged cruise liner on the 
much- derided turkey Speed 
2: Cruise Control (1997) - how 
fast could it go, again? Or the 
evil Largo’s even faster superyacht in Thunderball 
(1965), which could also separate into two 
pieces at the push of a button. Never mind the 
physics-bending involved in capsizing a liner, 
then giving passengers a chance to survive it, for 
The Poseidon Adventure (1972). Then there’s the 
onboard party in Some Like it Hot (1959) with its 
mysterious lack of crew, the impossible racing 
turns in Kurt Russell’s comedy Captain Ron 
(199 2), aboard a boat that somehow also managed 


a complete refit - while at sea... 

But authentic or not, film studios love boats 
and ships, and have done so since the dawn of 
the industry. They love the ocean too, although 
it is notoriously difficult and costly to film on 
water (one of the main reasons 1995’s Waterworld 
was the most expensive film of its era). Michael 
Williams- Jones, former president and CEO of 
United International Pictures, points out that, 
“While film and water go together spectacularly 
well, it’s very, very difficult to film at sea. If you 
have to reshoot a scene, the water or sky can 
have changed colour. Clouds, light, wind, all can 
change so fast. It’s why so often boat films are shot 
in tanks. Filming at sea is one of the most difficult 
- and most satisfying - things.” 

Filmmakers are drawn to maritime themes 
partly because they have an 
intrinsic glamour, whether 
superyachts, schooners, 
powerboats or ocean liners, 
but also because the confined 
world of a vessel on water makes 
an ideal stage for conflict and 
resolution. There is also the 
beauty of boats and the sea itself. 
Finally there is the peril inherent 
in being on a vessel; even if that 
danger isn’t the theme, it adds 
spice to any thriller, romance 
or comedy. As the 18th century sage Dr Johnson 
famously said: “Being in a ship is being in a jail, 
with the chance of being drowned.” 

Williams-Jones, who grew up sailing, argues 
that despite the costs and the inherent production 
problems, films are a wonderful medium for 
capturing the enormity of the ocean and the 
appeal of boating. “In a film like The Cruel Sea 
(1953) you feel the bitterness. If you look at All is 
Lost the ocean is the real star of the film.” □ 


“While film and 
water go together 
spectacularly well, 
it's very difficult to 
film at sea. Clouds, 
light, wind, all can 
change so fast” 


ONBOARD OPPRESSION 

Shipboard oppression and mutinies 
make powerful and popular drama. You 
get a strong sense of that in Moby Dick 
(1956) with Gregory Peck (who also 
played Captain Horatio Hornblower 
in the 1951 film of that name), from 
submarine films like The Hunt for Red 
October (1990) and Crimson Tide (1995) 
and Humphrey Bogart classic The 

Coine Mutiny (1954). 

One peculiarity of maritime films is 
that they are disproportionately based 
on real-life events. That is as true of 
All is Lost and Captain Phillips (2013) 
as it is of Titanic, Mutiny on the Bounty 
and 201 5's In the Heart of the Sea. But 
at the same time, boat films have the 
capacity to unleash the imagination. 
Many science fiction epics are really 

just boat films set in space. 

ROMANCE, ELEGANCE 

AND GLAMOUR 

For much of film history, boats have 
signified romance, elegance and 
glamour as much as peril, drama and 
adventure. This was especially true 
during the age of the great liners. Love 
Affair (1939) starring Irene Dunn and 
Charles Boyer (remade as An Affair 
to Remember in 1957) and two justly 
celebrated Fred Astaire musicals - 
Shall We Dance (1937) with its score 
by the Gershwins, and Royal Wedding 
(1951) - are largely set on liners. In mid 
20th-century films smaller boats could 
also evoke glamour and romance. 
Who can forget the famous scene in 
High Society (1956) when Bing Crosby 
serenades Grace Kelly on board his 
schooner True Love ? From the 1960s 
the Bond films - almost all of which 
feature stunning boats and speedboat 
chases - established superyachts as 
objects of desire, even if the boats 
in question tend to be owned by 
criminals and psychopaths. And it is 
almost certainly true that these are the 
films that inspire many young people 
sitting in cinemas far from the sea with 
their first yearning desire to taste the 
magic of boats.

S till” is not Galatea’s natural state. This is a 

superyacht designed, engineered and manufactured 
to run fast, with a pair of MTU’s latest 4000 series 
engines doing the heavy lifting. So successful was 
Heesen in building this slippery sportster that it hit 
29.7 knots on sea trials, 2.2 knots above its contracted design speed. 

It’s a little out of character, therefore, to see it leashed to the dock at 
Beaulieu-sur-Mer in the French Riviera, its low-down, sharp-nosed 
profile pointing to land, rather than out to sea. 

But all thoroughbreds need time to recover, and this ones taking 
it easy after a first season that saw it travel a very healthy 7,600 miles, 
visiting Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, Spain, Italy, Corsica and Monaco, 
where it made its first public appearance during the yacht show in 
September. “She’s the perfect Med boat,” reports skipper Thierry 
Pastor. “With all the micro-climates, her power means you can 
always get out of trouble. Just pull up the anchor and away.” 

Galatea is the first in a new line of 40 metre models from the 
Dutch manufacturer, and replaces Heesen’s established 37 metre, 
of which 10 were built. This isn’t simply some stretched version of 
the former model, though, with a bigger bathing platform and a new 
hardtop: Galatea has a brand new hull and superstructure design, 
and an improved layout. She was designed inside and out by Omega 
Architects, which has given her a comfortable interior of contrasting 



tones with an art deco edge. Real connoisseurs might identify the style 
as inspired by the Dutch handcraft period and the Amsterdam School. 
Either way, it’s just idiosyncratic enough to make it a brave decision for 
Heesen to install this interior on a spec boat - but it paid off, with the 
owner signing on the dotted line not long before the yacht’s launch. 

From the water, the new model doesn’t look as sharp as the 37 metre, 
but that’s no bad thing. It’s more upright and purposeful and now 
incorporates a really pleasing “tick” in the rear superstructure. But 
none of the earlier models’ DNA has been lost, which was important 
to the owner, who says he was attracted to Galatea by her “sporty 
design and cruising speed”. Windows have been improved all around, 
with the main beneficiary being the owners’ cabin, which gets much 
more light thanks to broader windows that taper less aggressively. 

New technologies have also been incorporated to improve space 
and comfort for those on board, notably a Heinen & Hopman HVAC 
system that cools the engine room with sea water, negating the need 
for massive - and noisy - fans on either beam to suck in air. This has 
freed up space inside to the rear of the saloon and means there’s less 
annoying ambient whirr. Serenity is further promoted by a pair of 
Seakeeper gyros either side of the tender garage to keep things rock 
steady at anchor. 

The engine room’s not one for swinging cats, but there’s still room to 
get around the two big MTUs, which in many ways are the main event. 
The yacht was designed from the ground up with the punchy 3,60 Ohp 
engines in mind - a decision that appealed to skipper Pastor, who 
has known the owner since 2011 and helped him shop for a yacht to 
replace his 23 metre Sunseeker. “I said to the owner, a fast boat can go 
slow, but a slow boat cannot go fast,” he recalls. “I prefer to escape bad 
weather than be in a displacement hull and ride it out. A displacement 
boat wallows; an aluminium boat can be sloppy, but you can also burn 
through it out of trouble. There’s no pleasure to be in a storm.” 

Galatea’s semi-displacement hull was put to the test during one 
nasty crossing of the Golfe du Lion, though. It was a “very bad night”, 
Pastor says, which left him and the stewardess barely on speaking 
terms. “Nothing was broken,” he says proudly. “We took on a lot of water, 
but none made it inside.” A bigger boat might have given them an easier 
passage, but the beauty of a 40 metre hull is the access it grants you. 
Galatea tucks into Beaulieu where the maximum length is 45 metres, 
and can sneak into most Med ports, while bays inaccessible to the big 
boys are well within the reach of this 40 metre. In his first season on the 
helm, Pastor found a sweet spot between performance and economy 
at 20-22 knots, but says Galatea provides a very comfy ride at 25-27 
knots as well. For short coastal hops, he tends to sit on 12-14 knots, and 
maintains 14-16 knots during night passages. At 12 knots, her range is 
2,200 nautical miles, a 400 nautical mile improvement on the 37 metre. 

Galatea packs more volume than her predecessor as well: 321GT 
versus 245GT. This doesn’t mean you’re getting vaulted ceilings and 
bathrooms you can play tennis in - this is a sport yacht, remember - 
but there’s no obvious pinching inside. In fact the only time you ever 
feel space is a little tight is when walking around the massive dining 
table to the rear of the saloon - but it doesn’t have to be that big. Frank 
Laupman from Omega Architects says he put the main dining here 
to “make the saloon feel as spacious as possible”. That dining table is 
beautiful, though, and it’s here, on entering through the cockpit doors, 
that you get your first hit of the brass-edged, geometric art deco vibe. 
The whole dining space, meanwhile, ripples with circles. “The dining

table has concentric inlays and the table itself is round on purpose to 
match the round shaped room and rounded windows,” says Laupman. 
“And the ceiling lamp is surrounded by a circular ceiling decoration.” 

Lights and darks bounce off each other, with the wood - Coromandel 
and light oak - faithful to the pre-WWII design period that inspired the 
interior. “Light stained oak was used on a large scale [back then] since 
the oak tree was available on a large scale in the Netherlands,” says 
Laupman. “Dark stained Coromandel was highly exotic and exclusive, 
used for details mostly to get a sense of precious luxury.” Nowhere 
on board - except the galley - will you see stainless steel or chrome, 
which are “cold”, according to the designer. Instead “warm” bronze was 
used on lighting panels, lamps, bathroom fixtures and surrounds. The 
approach has added intimacy to the main deck area, especially when 
the blinds are down and a film is playing on the big TV screen. 

The layout isn’t wildly different from the later-generation 37 metre 
Heesens, with a main-deck dining area and saloon leading onto the 
master suite forward. One big improvement is the galley, which has a 
bigger footprint. A small bureau with a clever chair that folds away flush 
gives purpose to the master cabin’s lobby, and beyond that are the main 
sleeping quarters and full-beam bathroom. The owner says his cabin 
is one of his favourite places on board, thanks to its space and silence. 
The art deco feel continues in here, and also downstairs in the guest 
accommodation, which comprises a full-beam VIP amidships, two 
twins forward and another full-beam double, all of which are en suite. 

The main access through the yacht - for crew and guests - is via 
the central stairs, which run from the lower deck up to the raised 
pilothouse, then out onto the flybridge. It’s wide-open spaces up here. 
The original order included a spa pool and sunpads, but the owner 
hasn’t fitted these yet, so they remain in storage in Beaulieu. They’re 
something he’s considering, but in the meantime he’s happy with the 
space offered by the expansive top deck, which he used extensively for 
exercise during the summer season. It’s testament to the stability of 
Galatea that he was able to continue exercising up here even on passage. 
There’s no bar on the flybridge, and none of the furniture is fixed, so it 
really does present plenty of layout options. The hardtop is a permanent 
fixture, though, and offers good protection. Biminis can be erected over 
those bits of deck it doesn’t cover to offer total shelter from the sun. 

Access forward to the sunken foredeck and sunpads is through a 
door to port of the upper helm. It slides out easily, and allowed Heesen 
to stay within class rules (Galatea is full MCA coded) and keep her 
guardrails low at the same time. These minimal railings atop the 
bulwarks help sleeken the profile and mean cool isn’t compromised. 
More lounging space can be found at water level when the big bathing 
platform folds down. It lowers beyond 90 degrees to make tender 
retrieval simple. No high-tech, over-engineered solutions here, just 
Teflon slides, which the crew bolt to the tender garage floor to get the 
Seadoo and five metre RIB back on board with the help of a winch. 

The toys in the garage, including the obligatory SeaBobs, are for the 
owner and his family’s use only - Galatea is a private yacht and not for 
charter, despite her commercial use coding. That might not be the case 
for much longer, since the owner is already looking to go bigger after a 
season with Galatea, and she’s now on the market for a snip under €20 
million. She’d make a great buy. Sometimes the first hull in a series can 
be compromised by a yard’s experimentation with design, fit-out and 
technology, with the sweet spot found a few boats into the production 
run. But Galatea benefits from the considerable proving ground that 
was the 37 metre, and there’s not a lot she doesn’t nail, especially where 
it really matters - out at sea with the throttles hard down, ei

Future 



Yachts such as Solandge and Maltese Falcon have stunning 
movie theatres hut, says Henry Farrar-Hockley, designers should 
beware: such technology is already steaming even further ahead 


T he desire and capability to augment yachts with 

Ffolly wood-grade cinemas has never been greater. 
Over the past few years onboard cinema rooms 
have graduated from novelty to necessity, not just 
for private owners who view their yachts as an 
extension of their homes - with all the creature 
comforts that go with them - but a charter clientele 
who want the best of everything at their fingertips. 

In this new technological era, the challenge for boat owners is how 
to maintain their cutting-edge credentials. For while the trailblazing 
progress of technology is a perpetual draw for newspaper column 
inches, at the very high-end of the market the latest luxury benchmark 
devices often slip under the mainstream media radar. Last year, for 
example, a limited edition “television”, modestly dubbed Zeus, was 
launched by nascent British manufacturer Titan with the minutest 
of fanfare, despite breaking the record for the world’s largest indoor 
screen. With a diagonal span of 9.4 metres and an unfeasibly lifelike, 
281 trillion-colour resolution, it represents the pinnacle of non- 
commercial cinema screens. 

At five metres high, Zeus is too big to be accommodated by all 
but the most colossal of yachts. It nonetheless exemplifies what 
can currently be achieved at the bleeding edge of audio-visual tech, 
and where better to showcase such groundbreaking entertainment 
than at sea? 

Take the Liirssen-built Solandge, the 85 metre yacht for charter 
launched in 2013, which boasts not one but two cinemas. Travis 
Ludbrook, Solandge’s senior chief engineer since its pre-build 
phase, says: “The owner pretty much knew what he wanted, having 
had the opportunity to deal with some problems on his other 
60 metre Lurssen. 

“We wanted to make it bigger and better for him. A bigger boat, 


bigger expectations, and with a different clientele in mind for 
chartering between a 60 and an 85.” 

The results are eye-opening: up top, an outdoor cinema doubles as a 
Glastonbury-standard PA system (the owner’s family being more than 
a little partial to open-air karaoke) with a singing platform extending 
out over the spa pool, while a drop-down, four metre screen is lit up by 
a 4K-ready projector from Italian manufacturer SIM2, a veritable 
Ferrari of its field. “Downstairs is the main event, though,” Ludbrook 
enthuses. “It’s a room of four metres by seven metres, and the guests get 
to enjoy motorised, multiplex- style seats that fully recline - while a sofa 
at the back of the room seats six people.” 

The projector, another 4K-compatible SIM2 behemoth, fills a 
115-inch canvas with a glorious 3D picture, while the immersive 7.1 
surround-sound speaker system is engineered by British marque 
Bowers & Wilkins. As well as a Kaleidescape film server, two dedicated 
Apple TV boxes - one for the owners and a second for guests - stream 
video direct to the giant screen from an iPhone. Naturally, popcorn is 
provided as standard. 

The elephant in any onboard screening room is obsolescence. With 
yacht builds taking years to complete, and innovation cycles often 
lasting only a few months, how do you go about future-proofing your 
ocean-bound cinema at the initial planning stage? Involving the key 
specialists and consultants early on in the project, for one - although 
this is now the rule rather than the exception. 

“The key is flexibility and an open architecture system,” advises 
Ken Freivokh, whose eponymous design consultancy provided the 
inspiration behind the 88 metre Maltese Falcon's multifaceted AV 
system, including a breathtaking outdoor cinema in which the 
proj ector beams directly on to the lower mizzen sail. Along with 
installation guru Geoff Lewis of Audio Vision, he is considered to have 
actually improved the yacht’s cinematic clout since its 2006 launch.

“In the case of the Falcon, the owner was very 
partial to Bang & Olufsen Freivokh explains, 
“and one of the advantages with B&O is that 
they tend to make definite advances and 
then launch products that remain available in 
the marketplace for a number of years. 
Working alongside Geoff, we ended up with a 
totally integrated solution that has remained 
very current.” 

Another essential, if rather obvious, rule 
of thumb is to invest in the most up-to-date 
video systems possible, even if this means 
seeking out ones that don’t yet exist. Laser 
light source projectors and fully fledged 
4K projector chips are likely to be the next 
big thing in consumer cinema, although 
Freivokh is working with Alan Bernardi 
of Yacht Intelligence on implementing the 
first onboard installation of IMAX - the 
super-sized 70mm video format favoured 
by Hollywood directors such as JJ Abrams 
and Christopher Nolan. Their ambitious 
concept, codenamedThe Nemo Room, has 
been optimised to fit 
into the hull of a 150 
metre yacht, with the 
overall design to be 
ready for tender by the 
end of 2015. 

The same applies 
to sound, even if 
innovations in audio 
tend to have a much 
longer shelf-life than 
video. “We did an 
install recently which 
was the first private 
commercial Dolby Atmos system,” recounts 
Rex Barrett, senior project manager at 
Ideaworks. “The client’s brief was simple: 

I want the best I can get.” Dolby Atmos 
adds ceiling-mounted speakers to the 
conventional surround-sound set-up to 
create a more three-dimensional effect. 

In commercial cinemas this nascent format 
requires up to 64 carefully positioned 
speakers, whereas in a yacht’s entertainment 
room the same wraparound effect can be 
achieved with 18 speakers. 

“Boat designers certainly seem to be 
waking up to the fact that AV kit needs space 
and ventilation,” says James Jackson, of 
Sensory International, a member of the 
Custom Electronic Design & Installation 
Association (CEDIA). Logic dictates the most 
available space for a dedicated cinema can be 
found lower down in the hull, where 


windowless areas also ensure that ambient 
light is kept to a minimum. The downside of 
this is that designers will need to factor in 
additional sound-proofing to accommodate 
your personal screening room’s proximity to 
the engine, crew quarters and tender garage. 

The ideal configuration is to separate your 
personal theatre into two spaces. “We’re now 
moving towards screening rooms that just 
contain a screen and speakers,” says Barrett. 
“All the other hardware is stored in racks in a 
separate room, which makes it easier to swap 
out individual boxes as and when they’re 
surplus to requirements.” 

Yet arguably the most important 
consideration of all in safeguarding your 
big-screen investment from becoming 
out-of-date is the one thing you’ll probably 
never see: the cabling. “For some years now we 
have been installing ‘future-proof’ backbone 
cabling that enables us to upgrade a yacht 
with minimum changes,” says Ameet 
Sarvaiya, CTO of Van Berge Henegouwen, the 
Dutch tech gurus 
responsible for the 
cinema systems on 
board Heesen’s 50 
metre Crazy Me. “We 
always over- cable by 
around 20 per cent,” 
adds Audio Vision’s 
Geoff Lewis, “as this 
allows a certain 
amount of failsafe for 
future expansion.” 

Having a tech- 
savvy crew member 
- or three - will certainly help prolong the 
efficacy of your onboard systems, although 
AV consultancies increasingly offer 
comprehensive after-sales back-up with a 
thoroughly 21st century twist. “We provide a 
full support facility with 24-hour response,” 
explains Neil Grant, MD of Harris Grant, the 
veteran marine AV consultancy whose 
purpose-built cinema and recording studio 
for Paul Allen’s 60.6 metre Meduse were the 
first of their kind on a Feadship. “We can 
also remotely log on to a large number of 
the onboard systems ourselves to check if 
they’re running properly. If you can get an 
internet connection, we can access the 
boat. It’s a great deal easier than receiving 
a phone call from a client saying: ‘We’ve 
just reached the Galapagos Islands and the 
TV doesn’t work. Can you put somebody 
on a plane?”’® 


“For some years now 
we've been installing 
'future-proof cabling 
that enables us to 
upgrade ayacht with 
minimum changes ” 



DIRECTOR’S CUT 

How to plan 
your superyacht 
cinema room 

WHAT YOU’RE WATCHING 

Before you meet the design and installation 
team, establish what you need from your 
onboard cinema. Family TV room or guest 
cinema? Video gaming or live sport? 

Its specific focus will have a huge impact 
on the size and shape of the room - and 
the hardware within it. 


CHOOSING A SCREEN 

There's an intangible magic about watching 
films through a projector, but you'll need 
a dedicated fixed screen to get the best out 
of your private theatre. Stewart Filmscreen 
and Gerriets' bespoke DFE range are two 
go-to brands for AV installers. 


CONTROL APPS 

While there are a host of reliable 
multitasking control apps from the likes of 
Crestron and Lizard Marine, bespoke apps 
from AV designers tend to offer the fastest 
response times and are, of course, tailored 
to your yacht's specific system. 


CABLE TESTING 

Having the AV and network cabling tested at 
the time of installation is a necessity as 
many cable installers aren't certified, and if 
the wiring is incorrectly fitted it can bring 
the video and internet systems to a halt 
months down the line. 


MAINTENANCE 

Training crew members in AV and IT is 
advisable, especially if you're chartering 
your yacht. Crestron and Bond TM both run 
highly regarded courses for crew, and more 
and more AV consultancies are offering 
instruction in managing their bespoke 
technology installations at sea.

Pacific paradise where Marlon Brando fell in love 










How Marlon Brando fell in 
love with paradise island - 
and helped save it 



E ver sworn not to come 

home from holiday - only 
to remember you have a 
job? For Marlon Brando it was more 
than an idle threat. While filming 
Mutiny on the Bounty in the early 
1960s, he was so enamoured with 
French Polynesia and the actress 
Tarita Teri’ipaia, that he bought an 
atoll - and married his co-star. 

A decade after Brandos death 
the atoll, Tetiaroa, is transformed 
into the eco resort he had dreamed 
of, with the help of his friend the 
hotelier Richard Bailey. It is easy 
to see why they felt protective: 
palm-cloaked islands, edged with 
white sand, encircle a lagoon of 
fantastical blues. Below the water 
wildlife runs from parrotfish 
and spotted eagle rays to blacktip 
sharks, dolphins and turtles. 

The Brando is a low-impact, 
high-luxury resort, with villas that 
blend into their environment, low- 
energy air-conditioning, and power 
provided by biofuels or the sun. 
Facilities are fit for a star - with chic 
restaurants and a cocoon-like spa - 
but the show-stopper is scenery so 
pristine that for Brando it outshone

Scenes so perfect you 
wished you could be 
there: now, you can... 


THE GREAT GATSBY 

Sydney , Australia 

FICTIONAL SETTING: Baz 

Lurhmann's 2013 adaptation takes 
place among the fictional Long Island 
beach communities of East Egg and West 
Egg. The houses, landscapes and cars are pure Americana 
- even the historical period itself is linked to this location, 
which thanks to the book's fame, feels like the Roaring 
Twenties' loudest corner. 

TRUE LOCATION: Lurhmann filmed in... Sydney; Gatsby's Long 
Island mansion was in fact The Manly Business School, for 
example. The substitution makes sense culturally: Sydney's 
booming economy, pretty young things, 
new social scenes and smart beach towns 
echo Fitzgerald's setting - perhaps more 
than 21st century Long Island. 

NEARBY: Sydney's early 20th century 
architecture lends itself to speakeasy 
bars: try Palmer & Co and The Baxter Inn. 
Sydney Superyacht Marina at Rozelle near 
the CBD takes yachts up to 70 metres. 


THUNDERBALL 

Exumas, Bahamas 

FICTIONAL SETTING: Some of James Bond's most 
spectacular underwater brawls take place in 1965 Sean 
Connery instalment Thunderball . Much of the film is 
set around Nassau in the Bahamas, including scenes 
in which Bond grapples with villain Largo's henchmen 
in an extraordinary series of submerged caves. 


TRUE LOCATION: The spot, near Staniel Cay, was 
renamed Thunderball Grotto after the film. The island 
itself looks unassuming, but hold your breath and swim 
beneath an overhang of rocks, and you'll emerge into a 
massive secret cavern. Fish will eat bread out of your 
hand and the snorkelling is spectacular. 

NEARBY: Staniel Cay Yacht Club takes yachts of up 
to 56 metres and has a laid-back bar.

THE TALENTED HR RIPLEY 

Procida, Italy 


FICTIONAL SETTING: In Anthony 

Minghella's 1999 film, the charisma of Jude ^qlUj 
Law's rich kid Dickie Greenleaf is inextricable 
from the fictitious Italian resort of Mongibello. He 
pops into jazz clubs, lounges on the beach and has trysts on 
yachts. If he'd idled somewhere less romantic. Matt Damon's 
poor jealous Tom Ripley may have felt less inclined to bonk 
him on the head with an oar. 

TRUE LOCATION: Procida, in the Bay of Naples, stood in for 
most of Mongibello. Off the mass tourist trail, the pretty 
island has ice cream-coloured houses, winding alleys and 
lemon groves. Glamorous Ischia also features and is nearby. 
NEARBY: The Albergo della Regina Isabella on Ischia is a 
gorgeous hotel on the water. Marina di Capri is 19 miles 
south east and Marina Molo Luise, in Naples, a little closer. 


THE BEACH 

Ko Phi Phi Leh, Thailand 


FICTIONAL SETTING: In Danny Boyle's film Leonardo 
DiCaprio's character Richard finds the eponymous beach 
Treasure Island- style, using a mysterious map - and his 
prize is the perfect sweep of sand. 

TRUE LOCATION: Ao Maya Bay on Ko Phi Phi Leh is 
indeed jaw-droppingly beautiful, on a luminous lagoon 
surrounded by towering cliffs - and it is easier to find 
than the film implies. There may be choppier seas in May 
and October, but it will be quieter. 

NEARBY: Stay on the yacht for the spectacular diving. 
About 30 miles north west is Royal Phuket Marina. 


HAHHAHIA! 

Skopelos, Greece 

FICTIONAL SETTING: The 2008 musical based around Abba 
numbers is set on the fictional Greek island of Kalokairi. 

The hot, dusty island, with its whitewashed houses and 
bougainvillea, sums up the romance of the Greek islands. 
TRUE LOCATION: Most of Mamma Mia! was filmed on the 
Greek Sporades islands of Skopelos and Skiathos. Skopelos, 
more rugged and less developed, boasts fabulous beaches: 
Glysteri, a gorgeous protected cove with translucent-green 
waters and Kastani, a cliff-backed slip of sand to the west. 
NEARBY: the Adrina Resort & Spa on Skopelos has a rooftop 
restaurant with spectacular views. Skiathos Marina in 
Skiathos town takes yachts of up to 65 metres. 



CASTAWAY 

Monuriki, Fiji 

FICTIONAL SETTING: The anonymous South Pacific island in Robert 
Zemeckis's 2000 film is a villain, crushing the sanity of Tom Hanks's crash- 
stranded character. He has lonely crab barbecues on its powder-sand 
beach, finds a corpse in the turquoise shallows and tries to hang himself 
from a spectacular mountain. 

TRUE LOCATION: If you visit Monuriki for any reason other than a plane crash, 
it is rather lovely, with lagoons, pine forests, a 178 metre peak to climb, turtles 
and a teeming coral reef. 

NEARBY: The island resort of Matamanoa is a mile south; the Yava Spa Pedicure 
with lime, lavender and coconut cream will soothe Robinson Crusoe feet. Port 
Denarau Marina, Fiji's only superyacht facility, is about 25 miles east.

► Meet the boat at Split. Spend the day in the 
Pakleni archipelago, with its hundreds of bays, 
beaches and crystal-clear water that's perfect for 
swimming and snorkelling. Enjoy the peace and 
privacy, or take the tender and drop in at one of 
the islands' chilled-out cocktail bars. Spend the 
night at anchor in a quiet bay. 


DAY 2 


► After breakfast, head to 
Skradin, a small, picturesque 
town about an hour up the river 
Krka. Stop on the way to swim in 
pretty bays along the coast and, 
once there, guests can tour Krka 
National Park, with its waterfalls, 
wild scenery and eagles. Spend 
the night in Skradin. 


DAY 4 


► Spend the morning 
swimming among the Kornati 
islands, then set out for Mali 
Losinj, the biggest island 
town in the Adriatic. Guests

Anchorage tips from Captain Mike 
Conquest of43myacht Golden Eagle 

Too many yachts head straight for the main 
attractions of Porto Montenegro or Kotor; 
other spots are worth visiting in the right 
conditions. To the south east of the entrance 
to Boka Bay, in the north west of Zaliv Traste, 
is a beautiful anchorage in clear 6m waters 
and a delightful bar-restaurant on the shore. 
If the weather is from the south west, anchor 
further south off Bigova and tender ashore to 
one of the lovely seafood restaurants in 
town. Building work on the northern shore is 
far enough away not to be a bother - it is a 
great place to spend an afternoon. 


E ven before the €60 million reinvention of 
Sveti Stefan that Aman Resorts revealed 
in 2011, the tiny island off the coast of 
Montenegro was an idyllic place. 

On my first visit, in 2003, 1 dined with 
Branko “Diki” Kazanegra, who had worked at the hotel 
as general manager during its glory days in the 1950s 
and 1960s. As the wine flowed he began to drop the 
names of the guests he’d looked after at this fortified 
islet of fisherman’s cottages turned jet-set hotel. There 
was the Hollywood contingent: Kirk Douglas, Elizabeth 
Taylor, Sidney Poitier, Richard Widmark; the British 
royal family: Princesses Margaret and Anne and, once, 
the Queen; assorted Russians: Yuri Gagarin and the 
Bolshoi ballerina Maya Plisetskaya; and many Italians, 
who would bring their yachts over the water: Monica 
Vitti, Alberto Moravia, Sophia Loren and her husband 
Carlo Ponti... In 1968 Paris Match judged Sveti Stefan 
one of the top 10 hotels in the world. 

It is still easy to see why the location proved such a draw. Despite 
unregulated development along its 180 miles of rocky coastline, 
Montenegro remains a country of remarkable natural beauty: a land 
of fjords, canyons - it has five national parks - and the largest lake in 
southern Europe, Skadar, shared with Albania and which teems with 
pelicans and flamingos. Then there is the hinterland of maquis-clad 
white karst mountains - “If you ironed Montenegro, it would be as big 
as Russia,” Diki memorably said at one point - where you can ski if you 
don’t mind an infrastructure best described as unsophisticated. 

If Montenegro’s reputation as a glamorous destination survived 
the Cold War, however, the break-up of Yugoslavia in the 1990s rather 
did for tourism. But since the early 2000s and through Montenegro’s 
2006 declaration of independence, the country and Sveti Stefan in 
particular have been enjoying a second golden age. In 2002 Jeremy 
Irons stayed at Sveti Stefan while shooting a film called Mathilde 
and rescued its precarious finances by racking up a bill of £65,000. 
Claudia Schiffer and Sylvester Stallone followed and a couple of years 
later Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta- Jones stopped by when 
scouting for property in Perast. And last summer Novak Djokovic, 
from nearby Belgrade and the world’s No.l men’s tennis player, 
married Jelena Ristic here. Montenegro has indeed been an A-list 
magnet ever since Lord Byron came here in 1809 and judged its rugged 
coastline “the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea”. 


A large part of this magnetism is down to Aman Resorts, which 
transformed Sveti Stefan into an ultra high-end resort during this 
period. In 2003 Adrian Zecha, then chairman and founder of the 
Singapore company, stayed at Sveti Stefan and “decided I would love 
to do something” with it. A meeting with Milo Djukanovic - Prime 
Minister then and now - was convened. The resort re-opened in 2009. 

This was the spark. The year after the Aman project began, 
Djukanovic resolved to revive the near-derelict former headquarters 
of the Imperial Navy of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and then the 
Yugoslav Navy on the Gulf of Kotor. He approached Hungarian-born 
Canadian mining magnate Peter Munk, founder and former chairman 
of Barrick Gold, the world’s biggest gold-mining company, with the 
idea of developing what has become Porto Montenegro. 

“I’d barely heard of Montenegro,” Munk says. “I thought it was in 
Italy. But I came down to take a look. We took a helicopter out over 
the Gulf of Kotor, and it was magnificent. To see those phenomenal 
docks, twice as wide as Monte Carlo’s main dock, or the ones in Nice 


Left: Perast on the 
Bay of Kotor. Inset:

Saint Tryphon in 
Kotor Old Town 


or Cannes, in that setting - it is as great as any natural harbour I have 
ever seen. Djukanovic said he had this dream [to] create in the Adriatic

174 


what Monte Carlo has become in the Med. I really liked the idea of 
building a port on the Gulf of Kotor.” 

Munk formed a company, Adriatic Marinas, and put together 
a consortium of investors, among them the British financier Lord 
Rothschild and his son Nat; Bernard Arnault, president and CEO of 
LVMH; the Russian aluminium oligarch Oleg Deripaska; and Munk’s 
son Anthony. Then he hired Australian Oliver Corlette, fresh out of 
the Harvard Business School’s MBA programme, to get the place built. 

Yet Djukanovic s enthusiasm to create more holiday developments 
shows no sign of waning and international companies continue to 
make landmark investments. 

“These include the resort developments of Lustica Bay,” Djukanovic 
wrote in a blog on the Financial Times s 
website, “where Orascom, the Egyptian 
telecom and construction conglomerate, will 
invest €1.1 billion by 2018; Porto Montenegro, 
where a Peter Munk-led consortium has 
already invested over €280 million; and Aman 
Sveti Stefan Resort, where Singapore’s Aman 
Resorts has a €55 million expansion phase on 
top of an initial €60 million investment.” 

In addition, Kerzner International has 
signed a contract to operate a €500 million 
resort, One&Only Portonovi, currently being 
built by Azmont Investments, a Montenegrin 
subsidiary of SOCAR, the Azerbaijani oil 
and gas company, on the site of another 
former military facility, Orjen Battalion 
at Kumbor. “Ten years ago I couldn’t have 
told you where Montenegro was,” said Sol 
Kerzner, the founder and former chairman of 
Kerzner International, at the project’s launch 
event. “Now I’ve chosen this place for the first 
One&Only experience in Europe.” 

Then there’s Dukley Gardens on the 
Budva Riviera, the liveliest stretch of coast, 
where the majority of visitors and investors 
are Russian. This is a development of 36 
three- to five-storey buildings containing 202 
apartments as well as a 13-storey tower in the 
town itself with an additional 36 flats. 

Yacht facilities are an important part of the 
new developments. There’ll be a marina with 
room for up to 250 yachts at the One&Only, 
as well as a tennis academy and Henri Chenot 
spa. Stratex, Dukley Gardens’ parent company, 
has acquired an existing marina with 330 
moorings, in which it plans to invest €45 
million “to make it the most luxurious in the 
entire Adriatic”. Lustica Bay will have slips 
for 226 yachts and by summer 2015 Porto 
Montenegro will have 454 berths for yachts 
from 12 to 180 metres, 159 for superyachts. Serious superyachting 
events are also starting to arrive, including the Superyacht 
Rendezvous Montenegro, 2-5 July 2015 ( superyachtrendezvous.com ). 

It’s not hard to see why Montenegro, and especially Porto 
Montenegro, appeals to yacht owners. Where once was a derelict 
dockyard, there’s now a state-of-the-art marina with fuelling and 24- 


hour assistance. The port has become essentially its own town, with 
streets and piazzas, homes and shops, a hotel and restaurants initially 
designed to cater not so much for the world’s wealthiest and most 
discerning have-yachts as the captains and crews they employ. 

In addition to the yacht club, lido and 64 metre infinity pool 
(where Nat Rothschild celebrated his 40th birthday in 2011), there’s a 
bilingual English-Montenegrin school, a customs and immigration 
office and a museum to showcase an array of extraordinary Cold War- 
era vessels, which have been pulled from the harbour. There’s also a 
Crew Club entertainment programme and a sports club. Indeed it is 
perhaps the only marina in the world that rents its own ski chalet - in 
Kolasin, a 100-mile drive away, which crew can use for free when they 
winter here. 

“Having captains onside is essential,” 

The peaceful ° 1 

Marina Perast, in says Charlie Birkett, co-founder and CEO 

of Y.CO. “Oliver Corlette made a wise 
decision in concluding that entertaining 
crew is as important as the more obvious 
logistical requirements. They took time to 
talk to people in every aspect of the industry, 
something new- development ports often 
overlook. And they were clever to recognise 
that, though they’ll never replace Saint- 
Tropez or Monaco, they can offer something 
missing elsewhere. Porto Montenegro will 
grow to become the significant yachting 
destination in the Adriatic.” 

Corlette is cool about the competition. 
“We’re very much encouraging new marinas. 
It’s all about critical mass,” he says. “The more 
yachts, the more berths we can have in and 
around Montenegro, the more attractive it 
becomes to the key players in the industry 
and the more likely they will be to relocate 
here. It makes it easier and ultimately more 
cost-effective for the customer, and we 
want to attract as many customers - yachting 
customers that is, not anyone - as we can. After 
all they’re promoting Montenegro, they’re 
encouraging more airlines to fly in here. So 
overall growing the pie like this is a great thing.” 

There’s also the very real attraction of 
Montenegro’s favourable tax regime. No duty 
on fuel, for example, and no VAT on repair work 
to yachts or yacht charters. In neighbouring 
Croatia (Dubrovnik is four hours’ sailing to the 
north), VAT, at 25 per cent on all yachts above 
40 metres, is levied, as it is throughout the EU. 

At which point it’s worth noting that yachts 
in Montenegro may not remain exempt ever 
after. The country entered into accession 
negotiations to join the EU in 2012 and is 
already ahead of the other four candidate countries. Still, as one still- 
buoyant senior player in the Montenegrin marina industry quipped at 
last year’s Monaco Yacht Show: “Just because you’re engaged doesn’t 
mean you have to go through with the marriage.” 

But then tax advantages or not, it’s still a beautiful, exceptionally 
located, well-connected place to keep a yacht, a 



NEED TO KNOW 

Bringing private and 
charter yachts to Montenegro 

A simple vignette (navigation permit) system 
allows multiple changes to the manifest. 
Yachts can clear out from three locations in 
the Bay of Kotor: Porto Montenegro, Zelenika 
or Kotor. Boats that take on duty-free fuel 
must do so within 24 hours, but otherwise 
foreign yachts can remain in Montenegrin 
waters with no restriction on time. Vignettes 
cost €420 per week for yachts over 24m and 
Porto Montenegro's concierge service can 
handle most of the paperwork.

Aman Sveti Stefan 


• The scene This smooth-as-silk resort is the 
swankiest in the eastern Adriatic. It lies just south of 
Budva, but its scalloped beaches and forest-cloaked 
grounds feel bucolic and every bit as exclusive as the 
price list suggests. 

* The lowdown It’s a two-part paradise. Villa Milocer 
sits in formal gardens, its vine-draped restaurant 
terrace overlooking the beach. Massive suites are 
modern and chic, with contemporary fireplaces 

and freestanding baths. Balconies look south to 
the resort’s main draw: Sveti Stefan island. The 


fisherman’s cottages on this 15th century 
fortified islet have been converted into 50 
luxury rooms, cottages and suites, tended by 
350 staff. Its winding footpaths are bordered 
with figs and pomegranates, and scented by 
magnolia, rosemary and other local herbs used 
in a vast spa back on the mainland. Amenities 
run from a cigar lounge to alfresco dining with 
vertiginous views on the upper terrace and swimming pools tiled in black so 
their waters better reflect the towering pines. 

* By boat Superyachts anchor in the bay by Villa Milocer. Guests tender in 
to the mainland pier, accessed through a cave, or to the pier on Sveti Stefan, 
conveniently located below the island’s signature restaurant.

Lustica Bay 


* The scene The draw of the pristine Lustica 
Peninsula is natural beauty, so only six per 
cent of the projects 690 hectares of rolling 
hillside will be given over to development. 
The outdoorsy facilities - including a 
spectacular golf course 320 metres above sea 
level - have jaw-dropping views as a result. 

• The lowdown The project is still in its 
infancy but the plan includes seven hotels, 
500 villas and townhouses, 1,000 apartments 
to buy, two marinas, spas, shops, a school and 
medical facilities. These will survey soaring 
peaks around the Bay of Kotor and across 


the Adriatic. The 
most exclusive arm 
will be set apart on a 
western promontory 
and will comprise 

villas plus a luxury hotel, with major brands 
vying for the tender. The project’s ethos is 
natural, eco-friendly and stylish: local rock 
is used in the buildings, with modern wood- 
and-stone interiors and kudos for its green 
credentials. The first residents have moved in 
but phase one won’t be completed until 2017. 

■ By boat The larger of two marinas will 
take yachts of up to 35 metres. The majority 
of berths will be for dayboats of about 15 
metres, anticipating that owners will keep 
larger yachts at Porto Montenegro and use 
smaller boats to zip along the coast or lounge 
at Lustica Bay’s two beaches. 


Dukley Gardens 


* The scene The contemporary development, 
curving its way down the side of the Zavala 
peninsula east of Budva, is a chic retreat for 
yacht owners and a welcoming haven for the 
children they look too trim to have produced. 

* The lowdown The 202 stepped residential 
apartments (with price tags that average 

€1 million) have views over the bay of Budva 
to the old town. The open-plan living spaces 
feature massive windows, broad terraces and 
the highest-spec fittings - think Poliform 
Varenna kitchens and Lualdi doors. More is 
in the pipeline, including a boutique hotel 
and a restaurant. The teak-decked, white 
upholstered Dukley Beach Lounge is a 
popular lunch spot for superyacht guests, 
overlooking the private beach, while on 
summer nights it is lit with candles for live 


blues sessions. The 
best table, however, 
is on the tiny VIP 
beach, accessible 
only by tender, where 
dinner for 24 can be 
held. For kids there’s a confectionary and ice- 
cream parlour, plus a kindergarten. 

* By boat It is a two-minute ride across the 
bay to Dukley Marina in Budva old town, 
with 20 berths for yachts of over 30 metres. 
By September 2017 it will have tripled in 
size and be modernised as part of a 20,000 
square metre development plan.

Porto Montenegro Marina, Tivat, Montenegro 
The ultimate destination marina on the Adriatic 


Marina of the month 


WHERE 

Nestled in the naturally protected waters 
of the Bay of Kotor, just south of Croatia 
on the Adriatic Sea, Porto Montenegro is 
a sprawling superyacht hub. 

USP 

If Montenegro is a hot spot for the yachting 
elite, Porto Montenegro - with its huge 
marina, luxe residences, fine dining and high- 
end shops and amenities - is the centrepiece. 

WHAT'S NEW 

The five-star Regent hotel is gearing up for 
its first full summer season, with 51 rooms 
overlooking the bay or mountains. The decor 
has a nautical flavour and facilities run from 
the cosy Library Bar to an expansive spa. 
YACHT FACILITIES 

Porto Montenegro’s marina - welcoming 
yachts up to 180m in 400 berths - puts a 


priority on service; each yacht is guided to its 
slip by a dinghy, given ample line handling 
attention and greeted by a concierge with a 
welcome basket. And that’s just the check-in. 
There’s tax- and duty-free fuel - plus tax-free 
Champagne in the market. Customs and 
immigration also are on-site, and a helipad 
makes meeting the yacht easy. 

COST 

From daily visitor rates to slip purchases for 
up to 30 years, there’s a range of rates to suit. 

POOL CLUB 

Stretching 64m, the iconic pool anchors the 
private members’ and VIP-only Lido Mar 
pool club. Dine at the Lido Pranzo restaurant 
by day and make reservations for the up- 
market Lido Rooftop restaurant for dinner. 
From 11pm, Scaramanga nightclub pumps out 
dance beats provided by international DJs. 


WHEN TO GO 

Bask in the sun from April to as late as 
October. But things don’t really heat up until 
high season in July and August, when Porto 
Montenegro’s slips sell out, the quayside 
bustles and poolside by the Lido is the place 
to be - when not on your superyacht, of course 
- as temperatures climb to 27C. Make a date 
in the diary now for 2-5 July 2015, when the 
Superyacht Rendezvous Montenegro invites 
yacht owners and their guests to enjoy an

MLJET 

The north western part of the island, near Polace, is a national 
park. The topography comprises smaller islands creating 
channels and calm, secluded waters - perfect for water 
sports. This is one of the most idyllic anchorages in southern 
Dalmatia: we deploy anchors and run a stern line ashore. 
42° 47' 27.1" N/17° 21' 03. 7" E 


TROGIR 

Trogir is a Unesco World 
Heritage Site and when 
you wander its narrow 
medieval streets it's clear 
why. The restaurant of 
choice is Calebotta. 
Here, dine alfresco on 
the stone-walled terrace, 
draped with vines. The 
salted sea bass is mouth- 
watering. 43° 30' 58.7" N/ 
16° 14' 49.2" E 


Skippers 

secrets 

Bruce Handyside, captain of 
50 metre charter yacht JO, 
describes his favourite stops on 
the southern Adriatic coast 


HYAR 


The island is rich in olives, lavender and 
vines. Hire a bike and tour the island to 
witness the vibrant colours of the 
lavender fields. Then head to restaurant 
Divino, looking across the bay to the 
Pakleni Islands, a small archipelago south 
of Hvar town. It's a spectacular view and 
the restaurant is famed for its seafood. 

43° 10' 24.6" N/16° 26' 26.8" E 


STONCICA BAY 


On the island of Vis, head to this little bay. 
It is secluded and if you anchor in the 
middle of the outer basin there's just 
enough swinging room. At the Stoncica 
Tavern the family produces a fine peka 
- Croatian stew of veal, octopus or lamb, 
cooked over an open fire. Because of the 
four-hour cooking time, notice is required. 
43° 04' 03.7" N/16° 14' 01.1" E 




SKRADIN 

The Bibich winery is a 20-minute 
drive from Trogir, nestled into the 
hills of Skradin. It has spectacular 
Croatian wines: full-bodied reds, 
interesting whites and enticing 
dessert wines. A degustation 
menu accompanies them.

The FPB Project 


Berthon represent Dashew Offshore’s range of 4x4 motoryachts 
in Europe. Available from 64’ to 110’, they are built in New 
Zealand of tin by Circa. Currently there are 1 ,100 feet of FPB 
afloat or in build. Offering recovery from capsize, range of no 
less than 5,000 nautical miles, solar array, and very much more. 
We think that they are the safest means of crossing oceans. 

FPB - accept no imitation. 



DISCOVERY 67' £1 ,495,000 

Caribbean 

Berthon are the preferred brokers for Discovery Yachts. This 
67’ splashed in 2010, and has lines from the Maestro - Ron 
Flolland. Massively over equipped for every eventuality, skipper 
maintained and an open cheque book approach to her care has 
her gleaming from every angle. Also a hit with the charter agents 
on the circuit so can wash her face as you like. Discover, as our 
chums at Marchwood are fond of saying, the difference. 



SWAN 66' FD US $2,500,000 UK VAT Paid 

Newport, Rhode Island 

Carbon this and vacuum infused that - immaculate yacht 
building meets modern technology to deliver a yacht that is 
fast, strong and able to make passage without a posse of crew 
aboard. From 2008, skipper maintained from Day One, owner’s 
fleet now burgeoning, hence the modesty and paucity of her ask. 



BALTIC 43' €395,000 

Lymington 

Reichel/Pugh and the magicians at Baltic in 2009. Exciting yet 
simple to sail - does either short handed or mob handed with 
aplomb. Super daysailor with lift keel, push button winches and 
stuff - yet is light as a feather. A true sailors’ yacht - we can 
think of nothing about this yacht not to like!

and admire her, erm, 
sternest asset... 






mmzL 


What is it? The perfectly formed transom of the 50 metre sloop 
Zefira, winner of our Sailing Yacht of the Year award at 201Ts World 
Superyacht Awards. She was built for Owners' Club members Paola 
and Salvatore Trifiro (since sold), who brought together the dream 
duo of Ed Dubois and Remi Tessier for the design. 

Why we love it: She's big but sleek, with long, clean lines and an 


uncluttered deck, making this carbon and aluminium yacht 
one of-the coolest afloat. And she's fast: hitting 18-19 knots. 
Design genius: The minimal, pared-back exterior dovetails 
perfectly Wittethe'light and bright Tessier interior. 

Perfect for: Loafing on deck during long, lazy passages
